Ald. Joe Dudzik.

It is with a heavy heart that I learned of the passing of my friend and colleague Alderman Joe Dudzik last night. He will be deeply missed by his colleagues, his constituents, his family and his many, many friends.

Joe made a career as a dedicated public servant, serving with great distinction for more than 20 years in the Department of Public Works before he was elected Alderman in 2002. As an elected official, he very ably represented the South Side district where he lived most of his life. He was a passionate advocate for the South Side, and took great delight in repeatedly telling those of us on the council that his was, in fact, the best district in the city.

Joe’s zeal for public service was outshined only by his love for his wife Lynn and his sons, Jeffrey and Jake. While he achieved many things, his family was by far his proudest accomplishment. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
