It is an honor to represent you and our neighborhoods of Albany Park, Avondale, Hermosa, Irving Park, and Logan Square in the Chicago City Council as Alderman of our Thirty-Fifth Ward.
As your Alderman, I've worked over the last three years to take on the rich and powerful special interests at City Hall and put our neighborhoods first. I've been a strong, bold, independent, and progressive voice for the interests of our neighborhoods and working families.
Together, we opposed Mayor Rahm Emanuel's massive property tax increase, and delivered $20 million in property tax relief for our most vulnerable families.
Together, we've brought improvements to every corner of our ward. Improvements like a new playground in Hermosa, a new library in Irving Park, a new hotel with $17/hr jobs in Logan Square, a multi-family affordable housing development in Albany Park, and a new Belmont Blue Line train station for Avondale, just to name a few.
Together, we put local zoning and budgetary decisions in the hands of the people of the 35th Ward, and have led the way in promoting inclusive, transparent, and democratic local decision making.
We've accomplished so much together over the last three years, and in the next four years we will accomplish so much more. With your continued support we will continue to build our movement for a City Hall and local government that is truly of, by, and for the people - not a rich and powerful few.
Thank you for your continued support!
