The 44th Ward

Lakeview has a little bit of everything. It's where many rent their first apartment as they begin to blaze their trail in life. It is home to retirees, families with children and one of the largest LGBTQ communities in the country. 

We are surrounded by Belmont Harbor, unique shops, some of the city's top-rated restaurants, the Southport Corridor and home to our beloved Chicago Cubs. 


Meet Elizabeth

For 25 years, I’ve worked to advance causes and candidates that I believed would do good in this world.

I have mentored teen girls from Cabrini Green; I have raised money for education and scholarships at the Frances Xavier Warde School (founded by Chicago’s former first lady, Maggie Daley); and I have served as a national fundraiser for anti-poverty initiatives with Catholic Charities USA and the University of Notre Dame.

I've worked in public service at the Mayor's Office in Lubbock, Texas; the Office of the Chief Judge of Cook County; the State of Illinois; and the U.S. Senate.

I am currently helping to expand opportunity on the south-side of Chicago with the Jack Kemp Foundation. 

Today, we need mutual understanding and respect more than ever. Relationship building and trust will be key in trying to rebuild our city government, and I have the skill set and city-wide network to fight for the 44th Ward.
