My Personal History With Chicago
I was born and raised in Chicago and for many years raised my three boys in Chicago. For twelve years I was Chicago’s Revenue Director, then Budget Director, then CEO of Chicago’s Public Schools. I care deeply about the people in every corner of Chicago. Chicago is a GREAT city. I love it, you love it, and the tourists who visit by the tens of thousands love it. But living in Chicago is very hard for many and it’s getting much harder. Demographics don’t lie.
I want to be our next Mayor. In the next weeks and months I look forward to laying out my specific thoughts and ideas as well as showing you how and why the current model for our city is failing. I look forward to earning your trust. I believe that without earning your trust I could never be the leader that our city deserves. My sole focus will be working day and night for you, for your families, for our children, and for our city. This job would be the pinnacle of my lifetime of service.
