It’s time to unite.
My name is Lori Lightfoot and I’m running for mayor of Chicago.
In order for Chicago to remain a world-class city, we need to create a new path. A path in which fairness and inclusion are our guiding principles. As our mayor, I will respect the experiences of all Chicagoans and ensure our city government works to uplift the quality of life for everyone.
We can, and we must, do better. We must do better to address the taxes and fees that burden middle- and low-income families. We must do better to halt the declining conditions of our neighborhood schools. We must do better to change an education policy that does not view parents, teachers, principals, staff or other stakeholders as valued partners. We must do better by insisting on a comprehensive plan to invest in families and neighborhoods, and to end the violence that plagues too many communities. We can do this, together. This is my commitment and my promise to you. Please join me.
For the City We Want
Lori’s vision for Chicago
Forge New Priorities
The cornerstone of our education policy must be to improve the quality of our neighborhood schools. These schools are not just places to learn, they are valuable resources and places that should be a source of pride.
A Comprehensive Plan
Too many children wake up every day, and go to bed every night, blanketed by a fear of violence. That fear has become the most significant factor in their young lives. We can, and we must, fix this.
Invest in Communities
All over Chicago, people feel the effects of an “us versus them” style of governance. Investing here, and not there; providing advantages to some, but not others; listening to a few, but ignoring far too many.
