  • Unwavering commitment to solving the toughest problems
  • Tireless application of expertise and out-of-the-box thinking to devise creative solutions

My Plan for Chicago


The budget needs to be a comprehensive long-term financial plan that “reverses” the cost drivers that continuously drive up taxes and fees while making cost-effective, long-term investments in areas that are critical to City growth and prosperity: public safety, quality schools, affordable cost-of-living, economic opportunities, and infrastructure investment. I intend to develop and implement specific strategies to ensure:

• Every community is safe and secure
• There are quality schools in every neighborhood
• We are not losing our middle class through fines, taxes and fees
• There are ample economic opportunities for all Chicagoans
• Chicago is an affordable place for all working families

Chicago needs to be a city of opportunity for everybody. That cannot be achieved if we cannot balance our budgets and our citizens cannot depend on critical services.


Change is made by volunteers like you!
