LaRaviere is a values-oriented candidate and served as a Bernie Sanders convention delegate

Although other Chicago mayoral candidates try to present themselves as "progressive," LaRaviere's focus is on real issues. He challenges establishment politics that cater to corrupt interests in the current administration. Chicago needs him in the Mayor's office.

Let's make Chicago a city that works for everyone.

Click the button below to see our plan to make Chicago work for all of us.

Why Support Troy?

Troy LaRaviere is the President of the Chicago Principals and Administrators Association, and an award-winning educator who risked his career to launch a one-man assault against corruption at City Hall. Troy knows it's hard for working Chicagoans to get ahead because our political leadership is corrupt, financially reckless with our tax dollars, incompetent, and out of touch with the needs of everyday people. We need a mayor who has sacrificed his own private gain for the public good, responsibly managed multi-million-dollar budgets, improved public institutions, and prioritized the needs of working families.  With these leadership needs in mind, there is no one more qualified to lead our city forward than Troy LaRaviere. With your help and involvement, there is no limit to what we can achieve together.

Ending Corruption

Get corporate money and other forms of corruption out of politics; expand public services, and stop the privatization of public assets.

Exceptional Schools for All

All Chicago’s families deserve to have their children experience an exceptional public school education within their neighborhood communities that strives to develop their full human potential and cultivate their unique gifts in all subjects including the fine arts, musicianship,  world language, social science, civic advocacy, S.T.E.M., trade skills, debate, athletics, composition, and leadership.

Affordable Housing for All

Build affordable housing, protect existing units, subsidize costs for low-income families, and dismantle the segregation that undergirds our housing inequities.

Progressive Revenue

Replace regressive tickets and fees with tax policies that compel the wealthy to pay their fair share.

Raise the Standard of Living

Create and protect living-wage jobs, and safeguard pensions and other earned benefits from corporate theft.

Thriving Neighborhoods

Make investments in businesses, infrastructure, public health, and transportation to improve local economies and quality of life.

Attacking Bias and Bigotry

Drastically reduce personal and institutional bias based on race, gender, religion, national origin, immigration status, sexual orientation, age, and disability status.

Safe Communities and Policing

Our campaign platform is designed to create a safe city that doesn’t need a massive police force. Existing policing must be made fair and effective through robust community/police partnerships; comprehensive anti-bias training and mental health support for officers; training in de-escalation and other evidence-based patrol and investigation strategies; more rigorous screening and induction standards; and stronger oversight and sanctions for civil rights violations.

Support for Immigrants

End the stereotyping and scapegoating of immigrants and take steps to make Chicago--and America--live up to its promise.

It's time to make City Hall a force for good

I've been a public servant for more than 30 years, and my experience has led me to one unavoidable conclusion: We can't make City Hall work for us all unless we rid our political system of corporate money and the politicians who accept that money. There is no shortcut around this enormous roadblock to good government. The influence of corporate money on our system undermines democracy because it weakens the power of everyday people to control their government. That is why I am the only candidate in the race for mayor who refuses to take money from corporate PACs, and the only candidate with a track record of exposing government corruption.

I was the first and only person inside CPS to expose the Barbara Byrd-Bennett bribery scandal; the first to expose Emanuel’s Aramark/Sodexo filthy schools scandal; the first person to expose the manipulation of charter school test scores; and the first to expose CPS as the most understaffed school district in Illinois. I was able to expose these scandals and more from my position as a public school principal and president of the principal’s association. Imagine the corruption we will expose—and eliminate—with me as mayor.

I was born and raised on the south side of Chicago and served in the U.S. Navy. I pursued a career in education to help people realize their full potential. That is also the driving force behind my run for Mayor of Chicago. Together, we can make City Hall a force for good.
