Welcome, from Alderwoman Ruth Cruz

Dear Friends and Neighbors of the 30th Ward, 

I am thrilled to have the opportunity to serve as your alderwoman and to represent our diverse and vibrant community here in Chicago. I am deeply committed to working with you all to build a better future for our ward, one that is more equitable, inclusive, and responsive to the needs of all residents.

As a lifelong Chicagoan and community activist, I have long been passionate about the issues facing our city and the ways in which local government can make a real difference in the lives of its residents. I believe that our ward has incredible potential, and I am excited to work with all of you to unlock it and create a brighter future for everyone who calls this place home.

My priorities as your alderwoman will be to work towards greater economic opportunity and job creation, improved public safety, increased investment in our schools and education system, and better access to affordable housing and healthcare. But more than that, I am committed to being a responsive and accountable leader who listens to your concerns and works tirelessly to address them.

I want to hear from you about the issues that matter most to you and your families. Whether it's a pothole on your street, a concern about public safety, or an idea for how we can make our community stronger and more connected, I am here to listen and help.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to me or my team with any questions, comments, or concerns you may have. Together, we can build a better future for the 30th Ward and for all of Chicago.

Thank you for the privilege of serving you.
