Dear Neighbor:

It’s been nearly two years since COVID upended our lives. We’ve lost family members, loved ones, and friends to the virus. We’ve struggled to keep up with our bills and housing expenses, while grappling to find good paying jobs. 

But in the midst of all this pain and suffering we’ve also seen the best in our communities. We’ve seen neighbors form mutual aid networks. We’ve seen struggling family-owned restaurants give out free meals to neighbors in need. We’ve seen Chicagoans come together to care for each other.

There is light at the end of the tunnel - that light comes in the form of a readily available COVID vaccine. The more we vaccinate, the faster we can get back to growing our economy and getting good paying jobs. Click here to find a vaccine near you.

Throughout this pandemic, my team and I have been working to ensure our neighborhoods and working families have what they need. Do not hesitate to reach out to me to seek assistance with any matter, or let me know how I can better serve the community.

I can be reached at 773.887.3772, or ward35[at]cityofchicago[dot]org, or at our ward's neighborhood service office: 2934 N. Milwaukee Avenue, Unit C, Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm. I also invite you to visit my aldermanic website found at

I am here to serve you, and I look forward to working with you for progress in our ward and our city.
