How will you work with community groups and residents on City matters?

I plan to create Community Think Tanks and TIF Advisory Boards. I will be accessible to the community, transparent in executing my duties as Alderman and more importantly I will listen to the residents of the Fourth Ward.

I seek to be transparent and open with the community. I have an open door policy and work with my residents I seek to be transparent and open with the community. I have an open door policy and work with my residents

#buildingcommunitythroughcollaboration…the only way for an alderman to be successful is to unify the constituents within the Ward towards the common goal of improving the community. Working with community groups and residents is essential to how I would work as alderman. I intend to have monthly “town halls” with each of the three (3) distinct sections of the Ward (generically labeled South Loop, Bronzeville, Hyde Park) and a 4th “all Ward” meeting. Separate from those meetings, I would work to meet with area community groups individually. Constituents would have regular access to the office and I would make sure to have mechanisms for people to submit concerns and to have response in a timely basis.
