Dear Visitors:


When I campaigned to be your alderman, I promised to clean up the 9th Ward, and make it a safer place in which to live.  Since taking office, public safety, affordable housing, education and recreation have been my top priorities.


Over the past 16 years, I have worked closely with the district commanders, block club presidents, community organizations, and residents to improve the quality of our lives.  As you know, it takes all of us working together to make a difference.


I encourage you to save this page in your bookmarks as a resource for City of Chicago and 9th Ward services.  Use these numbers in case of an emergency, to report a crime, or if you’re in need of city services.  Thank you for your cooperation and involvement.



Your Neighbor and Alderman,
