Monday marked the first day that candidates were eligible to file nomination petitions for the 2023 Chicago municipal elections, and races to determine the makeup of the Chicago City Council began to take shape.

Nearly a quarter of city council members will not stand for re-election in February, either due to running for a senior position or retiring.

As a result, fascinating races are taking place across the city, with no less than eight candidates having already expressed interest in replacing 21st Ald district. Howard Brookin.
