Key Priorities and Action Plan

Few citizens know the full extent of a Commissioner's responsibilities, nor how they can help improve their quality of life in the neighborhood. My campaign platform looks to leverage the seat of Cook County Commissioner to revitalize our neighborhoods. Our has three components:

Justice Reform 

Crime is at a rampant rate in Chicago. Families are afraid, and forced in doors. Business have blacked balled and labeled our communities as unsafe and unfit for commerce.

Fair Taxation

Chicago has become the city of over taxation. The Cook County Board has played a huge role in this. We have paid heavily into a system that gives us nothing.



After 30 years, county services will be returning back to our neighborhoods.
