Community First means focusing on solving the problems affecting working families. It means investing in things like public safety, education, community services, and affordable housing, instead of projects for special interests. We need elected officials that put Community First to tackle the greatest issues facing our city and neighborhoods. Only then will we have a city where everyone feels safe and where we are all empowered to pursue meaningful lives.
Our endorsement goes to Colin Bird-Martinez,
an automotive analyst and busy community organizer. He co-founded the Hermosa Neighborhood Association, which has advocated for affordable housing and infrastructure improvements, such as better paved streets. He served on a local school council and is active in Reclaim Chicago, a group that has campaigned for progressive candidates countywide.
The 31st Ward includes portions of the northwest side communities of Avondale, Belmont-Cragin, Hermosa, Logan Square, and Portage Park. This includes areas sometimes called Kelvyn Park, Belmont Gardens, Cragin, West Logan Square, among others.Check Address Register to Vote
