A Breath of Fresh Air

I am both honored and humbled to have received the endorsements from both the Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Sun Times.


The Tribune recognized our hard work, citing our promotion of job fairs, financial literacy workshops and services to help constituents avoid foreclosures; and even called our work and efforts “A breath of fresh air.”


The Sun Times called me a thought leader on two critically important issues I hold close to my heart: healthcare and gun violence prevention. I was particularly proud when they highlighted the ‘Kelly Report,’ a report I authored that analyzes health disparities and recognizing the impact of gun violence on our nation’s health.

In addition, I have also been endorsed by:download full film iBoy 2017
