Endorsed by Present Alderman Osterman, Joe Dunne Aims to Improve the 48th Ward

Joe Dunne, a longstanding resident of Edgewater and vice president of Bickerdike Redevelopment Company, is one of those ten. With a focus on affordable housing, Dunne feels that his more than 15 years of real estate experience will be beneficial to his candidacy.
