The neighbors I have met in the 31st Ward are hardworking and honest. They value the unity that comes from helping one another and working together to make our neighborhoods better. We know that we are only truly free when we feel safe walking around in our own community, and we need a city government that will actually listen and respond to our concerns—not just pay lip service to them.
Chicago is a city in crisis. Children do not receive the world-class education they deserve. Our neighborhood parks, streets, and public transportation need major repairs. Rising rents are displacing longtime residents, and rising inequality is pushing people out of Chicago and out of the middle class.
