My endorsement for the 2019 Municipal Elections
The last day to EARLY vote is today, MONDAY 2/25!
Tomorrow on Election Day, the voters of Chicago have an enormous opportunity to set a new course if they cast their vote for Lori Lightfoot as the next mayor of Chicago.
For years, I have fought hard in City Council to advance policies that support working families and our children, and equitable investment in our neighborhoods. Lori is my choice for mayor because she shares this vision for our city and because she is uniquely qualified to lead us away from the old Chicago way of doing business.
Lori is capable and principled and has the experience the next mayor will need on issues that are critical to our city’s future-from fighting corruption as a federal prosecutor, to leading the way forward on police reform as the chair of the Police Accountability Task Force. I encourage Chicagoans to cast their ballots for Lori Lightfoot on Tuesday and to support her grassroots effort in the final days of this race.
This election will have a lasting impact on our city. Make sure you do all you can to elect the best leader for Chicago, Lori Lightfoot.I am working to elect more independent aldermen to the ranks of city council. We need more independent aldermen who will work with us on the issues that we face everyday. I am supporting candidates in open races, like Robert Murphy in the 39th, Jeff Jenkins in the 47th, and Maria Hadden for the 49th. I’m also supporting Peter Gariepy for City Treasurer. Please read Peter’s platform for transforming the Treasurer’s Office.
