Paul Siegel was a precinct captain in the Jiménez for Alderman Campaign (1973-1975). He was also a member of the Inter Communal Survival Committees that moved to Chicago to concentrate their forces and work in uptown organizing the poor at the grassroots level. Mr. Siegel also ran for alderman of the 46th ward and nearly won. Like the Jiménez campaign, his run helped to lay important groundwork in the ward for the victory that arrived with Helen Shiller’s election in 1987.
