Political Wards and City Elected Aldermen
Until after the 2020 census (and a planned reduction to 14 wards), the City is divided into 28 wards. There is one Alderman elected in each ward who then serves on the Board of Aldermen (the City legislative body). Wards and the aldermen are important in the functioning of the city, as the approval of the local Alderman is generally understood to be necessary before large projects may begin.
The Southampton neighborhood has pieces of three wards--Ward 16 and Ward 14 generally divide along Macklind. Ward 23 has a sliver of streets from January to Brannon. Below are the current Ward Aldermen serving these areas of the Southampton neighborhood and a Southampton neighborhood map showing the ward lines.
Ward 14, Carol Howard
Ward 16, Tom Oldenburg
Ward 23, Joe Vaccaro
