Maria will continue to be an important voice on the Chicago City Council!
Alderwoman Maria Hadden is the first Black, queer woman elected to Chicago City Council. A servant-leader with a background in community organizing and participatory democracy, Maria has become an independent, progressive champion of the people on the City Council who advocates for not just her ward, but communities across Chicago. She is focused on creating a vision and plan for Chicago’s future and is a voice of reason on the City Council. Maria lives with her wife, Natalia, and their cattledog, Finn, in the Rogers Park neighborhood.
