GRAND BOULEVARD — Another candidate is joining the race to lead the 4th Ward.
Khari Humphries began circulating petitions this week to run for alderperson in the ward. The married father of two joined the Mayor’s Office earlier this year as the city’s senior director of Youth Policy.
Humphries declined to comment beyond confirming his candidacy.
Humphries, a St. Xavier University alumnus, has more than 25 years of experience in the nonprofit and community engagement world, most recently serving as senior manger of Community Life for real estate developer The Community Builders.
Before that, Humphries served as director of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago.
Ald. Sophia King announced her mayoral campaign in August, meaning her seat appears up for grabs.
The election is Feb. 28.
