"I come from a proud family that has been involved in public service for as long as I can remember. I want to work for you. We need to create more living wage jobs in our city; bring in businesses that enhance our ward; work with the elected school boards of both school districts in the 2nd Ward to improve our schools; make public safety a top priority; and hold businesses, whom we as residents support, accountable for maintaining clean areas, including alley ways. As a State of Illinois employee and a community resource, I know what it takes to find solutions, navigate complicated governmental agencies, and get things done."

What Does An Alderwoman Do?

An alderwoman is a member of the City Council. As the legislative body of the city, the City Council usually meets  to exercise general and specific powers delegated by state statute.

The City Council votes on all proposed loans, grants, bond issues, land acquisitions and sales, zoning changes, traffic control issues, mayoral appointees, and other financial appropriations.
The City of Calumet City is divided into seven legislative districts or wards. Each district is represented by an alderman who is elected by their constituency to serve a four year term. In addition to representing the interests of their ward residents, an alderwoman works with individual departments on the execution of city activities, and reviews proposed ordinances, resolutions and orders before they are voted on by the full council.
