The Next Four Years
Dear Neighbors,

Last night we made history together as a city and will begin a new chapter together to bring real change to city government. I look forward to working with our new Mayor and new City Council in this unprecedented and hopeful moment in Chicago.

On behalf of my staff, family and myself, I offer a sincere thank you for the support you showed on Tuesday. I am honored and privileged to represent our wonderful Lincoln Park and Gold Coast community for the next four years.
