A government that is truly of, by, and for the people - not the rich and powerful corporate interests; a government that puts our neighborhoods and working families first, can only be won by building the capacity of the people to govern from below.
That's why, as Alderman of Chicago's 35th Ward I'm building open, inclusive, and transparent democratic processes and structures at the local level, and fighting for progressive legislation citywide.
Through the 35th Ward Office's three people power initiatives - Participatory Budgeting (PB), Community-Driven Zoning and Development (CDZD), and the Community Defense Committee, and through United Neighbors of the 35th Ward - the Ward's Independent Political Organization (IPO), 35th Ward residents are invited to not just participate, but lead in determining the future of their community.
"El pueblo manda" (the people govern) in the 35th Ward, and I invite you to sign up to get involved in our grassroots efforts to win a government accountable to us, not big and powerful corporations.
Alderman & Democratic Committeeman
Thirty-Fifth Ward, City of Chicago
