Welcome to the 23rd Ward Website

Dear Residents,

Thank you for visiting the 23rd Ward website. This website has been created for you to ensure quick results by providing updates and information in the co
mmunity. The 23rd ward is a community of wonderful people and great neighborhoods. Your priorities have always driven my work and I hope this website is helpful to you, your family and the entire ward.

For the past 18 years it has been my honor to represent our corner of Chicago as your Alderman and to help keep our neighborhoods great places to live and raise a family. I've always believed that I can only do my job well by listening carefully to what our residents need and fighting for better City Services.

In addition to the website, I encourage you to stop by the office or call us at (773) 582-4444. My agenda has always been to be of assistance to you and your family. Along with calling or visiting us, this website also provides the option to enter a city service request electronically into the contact form on this page. Provide as many details as possible. Finally, you can always e-mail me at with any concerns you may have. Our office is located at 6247 S. Archer Avenue. 

As always, it is a privilege to represent the 23rd ward.
