Alderman Ricardo Munoz Will Not Run For Reelection

Alderman Ricardo Munoz will not run for reelection next term, stepping down from his position representing the 14th Ward after 25 years. “It’s time for me to move on and write the next chapter of my life,” said Munoz in an exclusive interview with NBC5’s Carol Marin. Munoz was appointed in 1993 by Mayor Richard Daley to replace Chuy Garcia, after Garcia moved on to the Illinois State Senate. While he said he’s weighing his options, Munoz told Marin he’d continue to stay involved in politics, even hinting at a possible mayoral run down the road. “I’m not leaving politics, I’m not retiring from public service, I’m just retiring as alderman…I’m only 53, I can run for mayor in 2023 if I want to,” said Munoz.
