Bob Fioretti, 57, alderman, Second Ward

Ties to Daley: A lawyer elected to the council 2007, Fioretti quickly became a prominent voice among aldermen, showing a willingness to criticize the mayor. He was one of the primary voices raising questions about Daley's plans to financially back the 2016 Summer Olympics, though he ultimately backed the plan. In private practice before his election, Fioretti's clients included plaintiffs who alleged misconduct by Chicago police. José M. Osorio, Chicago Tribune
