The head of the Chicago City Council's Latino Caucus said on Wednesday that a deal is closer than ever before on the contentious re-drawing of ward boundaries. The possible breakthrough comes after a compromise offer was extended to break the stalemate.
Ald. Danny Solis (22nd), the Latino Caucus chair, said he got a call on Tuesday from Ald. Pat O'Connor (40th), a Mayor Rahm Emanuel ally who's been closely involved in the mapping.
