I support Colin because he has been an integral part of the community and the Hermosa Neighborhood Association. His leadership at HNA is reflected throughout the community with the addition of the safety island on Fullerton and Keystone and pushing for -- and securing -- a community playground. I'm happy to call him my neighbor and friend.

I was drawn to Colin and his city council campaign because of his passionate and steadfast support for the students, teachers, and staff of Chicago Public Schools. From pre-K to post-grad, Colin is a knowledgeable and effective advocate for education in every corner our city. He brings many innovative policy proposals to the table, while remaining a reliable and committed defender of union educators.



I've supported Colin since he moved to Hermosa years ago. He's been a great help in our community. He's helping to maintain the community through clean-and-greens and he's been a big help at our local community school.

He isn't afraid to make waves in order to get things done. He's not here to advantage himself. He is here because he knows and loves the residents and thinks about the community first.



I'm supporting Colin Bird-Martinez because he is a community leader that I know will fight hard to make government work for all of the city's residents, not just the wealthy few.
