Fighting for a Neighborhood Agenda

We are connected as a community and we must tackle the difficult issues together. That means uniting to solve our problems and listening to your concerns. Please let us know what issues are most important to you and what you would like to see done to solve them.


We all deserve to be safe in our homes and on our streets. We must take a holistic approach to combating crime and violence that includes economic opportunity, quality schools, neighborhood awareness and unity, and working with law enforcement.

Public Education

As a proud graduate of Chicago Public Schools and father of two children in Chicago Public Schools, I understand that public education is crucial to a thriving community. As a teacher, I understand we must support our teachers who work very hard to teach our future leaders. I will fight for fully funded public education to ensure all our schools receive the funding and support they need and deserve. I will fight for an elected school board so that our voice is heard.

A Welcoming Ward

Everyone should be welcome in our ward and no one should be forced out. We are paying more and more in property taxes and getting less and less services. We must have an equitable property tax system that ensures families who have lived here for a long time will continue to stay in our community. At the same time, we must also protect renters whose rent continues to increase.

Clean Water

A recent Chicago Tribune analysis found nearly 70% of homes tested in Chicago were found to have lead in their tap water. 30% of homes were found to have the maximum amount of lead concentrations allowed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

For nearly a century, lead pipes were mandated for residential properties in Chicago. Yet, the city is requiring homeowners to pay the cost of replacing the lead pipes. This is a public health crisis that cannot be left at the doorstep of homeowners. There must be public hearings on this issue.
