Race for Chicago city council. Candidate positions on key issues

I am running for low-income people and working families in the City of Chicago and in the 1st Ward who have continually been left out of the political process that affects them most vulnerably. As our current alderman has prioritized greedy developers, many of our working people in the 1st ward have struggled to afford their homes, have been displaced from their schools and disconnected from their communities. While my opponent has disregarded the needs of our community, I have been working with the Logan Square Neighborhood Association, the Jane Adams Senior Caucus and Friends of the Park to develop the the skills necessary to run a transparent and inclusive democratic government in our ward. I will bring a radical anti-displacement housing plan, advocacy for deeper CPS and community investment to our public schools, community led zoning and participatory budgeting to our ward.

For the first 67 years of the 20th century, Pop McKale and Hi Corbett were the singular titans of Tucson sports. McKale was the UA’s athletic director and football, baseball and basketball coach. Corbett coordinated Tucson’s acquisitions of the PGA Tour, major-league spring training and minor-league baseball.
