The 45th Ward Alderman should understand how to work with the community in which he serves. He should stand up for his constituents and fight for the resources they support through their hard earned tax dollars. He should be a fierce advocate for maintaining our police resources at the highest levels possible to ensure our safety.
As a veteran Chicago Police supervisor, attorney and dedicated family man, I will utilize my vast law enforcement experience, legal knowledge and leadership skills to:
• Empower the community to help properly manage our resources,
• Increase Economic Development and
• Improve public safety in our neighborhoods
My administration will seek the planning assistance of key opinion leaders, residents, neighborhood organizations, and businesses to improve our neighborhoods. Ward residents will always be informed and involved in the decisions that impact our community. The best interests of the ward will always be my main priority.
I have a unique perspective on law enforcement after 23 years with the Chicago Police Department. I understand what it takes to keep a community safe, and I know what resources are needed to accomplish that goal. I will work together with the Commanders of the 16th and 17th Districts to ensure we have the appropriate resources necessary to keep our residents safe.
Murals and painted store fronts are the corner stone of the Arena administration’s economic development plan. He has come out publicly against a change in O’hare concession contracts. He is against legislation that would allow ward residents FREE Meter Parking on Sunday. All the while uttering hardly a word for more police resources in our community as street gangs gradually seek to take control of our neighborhoods and parks.
Like you, I am a 45th Ward resident who is tired of paying ridiculously high taxes for poor city services. For far too long city government has served itself rather than the interests of its citizens. With your support, we can change this by allowing me to be your voice for our ward.
