Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Public office is about improving people's lives, whether it's creating jobs, improving public education or ensuring quality senior & child care, the main purpose is to improve people lives.
  • Education is the gateway to reaching the American dream. I am an experienced policy maker with a special focus on organizing at the community level. Chicago is a world-class city and we deserve world-class schools.
  • We need to put Springfield back on the side of working people. Currently, 66% of Illinois corporations pay no income tax, while working adults pay income tax every pay check. I want to make sure corporations and millionaires pay their fair share so
