A better ward is Possible
Chigozie is fighting for a West Ward that works for everyone. Together, we can advance a bold set of policies that will reshape our local economy, redevelop our neighborhoods, and reduce violence and harm. Our platform was built in community with residents and stakeholders in the West Ward, but it is only a start. We invite everyone to contribute. If you have suggestions, please e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
