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.
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.
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.
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.
