Numbers Matter

I am sending this email to thank you for believing in me and donating in the past. It is humbling to receive such a positive and understanding embrace from your own neighbors.

As you may know, prior to beginning my legal career, I was an Engineer. One of the most important things you’ll learn in this field is numbers matter. As we begin this new campaign, there are two numbers I want you to always think about.

I am sending this email to thank you for believing in me and donating in the past. It is humbling to receive such a positive and understanding embrace from your own neighbors.

As you may know, prior to beginning my legal career, I was an Engineer. One of the most important things you’ll learn in this field is numbers matter. As we begin this new campaign, there are two numbers I want you to always think about.
100
In 2011 when I made my first run for Alderman, we commanded second place, and less than 100 votes separated us from a runoff. Yes, 100. That number is bittersweet because we were forced to end our campaign but it also showed us that there was a need for change and a hunger for qualified leadership.
18
The success of the 18th ward is important to me. This ward deserves to have experienced, knowledgeable and engaged leadership. One who will work to create jobs, fight crime and build a stronger community. I’m advocating for the promise of a ward that works, learns, and thrives together.
Now, do you see why numbers matter?
What we need is a new vision, and new direction, and a representative that can do more with less! With your help we can seat a new Alderman and make the 18th ward a greater ward.
We can do this!
I thank you for your support and look forward to the journey that lies ahead.
Sincerely,

  • I thought it was proven last time that you did not even live in the ward. Have you finally made the 18th ward your official and just on paper, residence ?

  • Casey welcome back! i love that you again take an interest in my 18th ward.
    Have no idea what you talking about. For the record I do live in the 18th ward. this is true now, this was true when i ran 4 years ago, and this has been continuous....

    Casey welcome back! i love that you again take an interest in my 18th ward.
    Have no idea what you talking about. For the record I do live in the 18th ward. this is true now, this was true when i ran 4 years ago, and this has been continuous. your comments on the qualifications of other alderman are well documented, along with your defense of the current incumbent. i just ask that you live in truth. the only thing "proven" is that you don't know me, my family, or my body of work.

    instead of focusing on the fictional, lets focus on that i am an accomplished Attorney with over 10+ years of legal experience (since Alderman have legislative duties), hold a masters in Finance (since Alderman have fiscal duties), am a successful business owner, am an engineer (since critical thinking is involved), has secure thousands in grant money for my ward's public parks, am the founder and publisher of my community's only local newspaper,use my legal knowledge volunteering in felony expungment, just hosted a jobs forum that focused on CFD currently open application period, . . .

    but i welcome you (and every one) to get to know me i will be at my campaign office Saturday at noon to sit and answer any of your true concerns, and hopefully you will leave knowing that i am extremely qualified and mean to build on my ward's greatness!
