Thank you to all my supporters and voters. The struggle continues.

Alberto Bocanegra

On behalf of all our campaign staff, I want to thank all the people who came out and voted for me, February 22. I want to thank all the people who donated their time and their money to work for positive change in the 15th Ward. We did not achieve the results we expected. We shall analyze what we have done right and what we need to do better. We shall help other campaigns dedicated to making progressive change in Chicago, in Cook County, in Illinois, and across the country.

I will continue to struggle for progress and justice for the people of the 15th Ward along with the other dedicated people who have become involved in my campaign.

Some of the campaigns we intend to emphasize include:

* Fighting any plans to impose a Walmart on the ward which would devastate the small businesses on 47th Street.

* Struggling for better funding for mass transit and improved service for the ward.

* Working with neighborhood organizations to stop the violence in the streets.

Feel free to call me with your concerns and suggestions. 773-981-5119.

Alberto Bocanegra has a track record of challenging the current Alderman on issues including the lack of development and lack of services in the ward. As Alderman Alberto will be accessible and visible throughout the community. He will work hard to stop Gentrification, Corruption, Violence and Overcrowding in our schools. Alberto will work hard to build recreation centers to keep our youth off of the streets and away from drugs and gangs. 

Alberto Bocanegra, Jr. was born and raised in Chicago Illinois, and is a Native son of the 15th Ward. Alberto graduated Shield Elementary, located in the 15th ward, and Curie High School. He also attended Fox College.

By the time Alberto was 20 years of age, he was the director of a successful Labor Employment Agency. Throughout his business career Bocanegra demonstrated care and concern for people. His revolutionary policy of providing free transportation to job sites encouraged the city council to entertain an ordinance codifying a similar idea. 

Alberto is a proud member of the organization that made the March 10th Immigration and May Day mega marches possible. He was featured on newscasts seen worldwide as he confronted Minutemen organizers. As a member the Committee For A Better Chicago (CFABC), Bocanegra has fought against corruption and injustice in all parts of the city. Alberto has fought hard for affordable housing, particularly in the 15th ward.
