Sugden who declared his candidacy before the sudden death of Alderman Joe Dudzik says is running a campaign that is focusing on public safety, fiscal responsibility, business development and education.

\"I want to foster an atmosphere that's communicative. We've kept promise of 24 hour response when contact by voters.\"
