I am running for State Representative in Illinois' 16th House District - as the only candidate with a Record of Leadership - in our community. Our district encompasses parts of Skokie, Morton Grove, Lincolnwood, and Chicago's 50th and 40th Wards.
I was born and raised in Skokie and have been a resident for over 30 years. I am a community leader and activist and have worked on issues that our community cares about, from fighting for a higher minimum wage to increased transparency, and more citizen participation in government.
Following the Sandy Hook School shooting in 2012, I founded People for a Safer Society, an Illinois nonprofit organization to fight gun violence. I helped pass landmark gun violence prevention legislation, and was instrumental in stopping the opening of a gun shop and range on Howard Street in Niles, near Niles West High School.
Thank you for visiting my website, and I hope to earn your vote.
