Incumbent Lisa Goodman, 47, is running unopposed. She was first elected in 1997 and re-elected three times with more than 70 percent of the vote. She represents the Bryn Mawr, Cedar-Isles-Dean, Downtown, Elliot Park, Kenwood-Isles, Loring Park, Lowry Hill and North Loop neighborhoods.
Also running unopposed is council member Elizabeth Glidden, 45, who is seeking a third term. Her district includes the Central, Powderhorn, Bryant, Bancroft, Field, Regina, Northrop and Kingfield neighborhoods.
An earlier version of this article incorrectly listed the Whittier neighborhood as being part of the Sixth Ward. Because of redistricting, as of Jan. 1, 2014, Whittier will be in the 10th Ward, and residents will be voting for candidates on the ballot in that ward.
