  • What is a Committeeman

    The thing which is great about being your Democratic Committeeman is that you can drive through our community and see the many things we have worked on together to improve our neighborhood. I take great personal satisfaction in knowing that everyday my goal is to make things better for the people who put their trust in me. This video explains how being your Democratic Committeeman works within the bigger picture of the political landscape. Continuing to be your Democratic Committeeman, I can make sure we acquire the funding and support needed to keep our community the great place it is. I really hope you can take the time to watch this video and see why it is important to come out and vote on March 15th. Thanks. Pat O’Connor

  • Neighborhood Justice Office

    Please take some time to view this video about your Neighborhood Justice Office. One of the advantages of being in office for awhile is that you get to know how processes work so that unique services can be brought into our community. The Neighborhood Justice Office takes up and tries cases that are important to the community. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a major felony but can be anything that has a negative impact on our quality of life, for example someone who is caught destroying blocks with graffiti. This office and these prosecutors give us the ability to focus on cases we feel are important to us. As always please call my office 773.769.1140 with any questions. Thanks, Pat O’Connor.

Major renovations in EVERY 40th Ward school to address overcrowding.

Fought to build Northside College Prep, Illinois’ top rated high school.

State-of-the-art 17th, 20th and 24th District Police Stations built, and a modern Engine 70 Company fire station.

Major improvements made in EVERY park; new playlots built; bike walking trail constructed; dog park opened; completed the 20 acre West Ridge Nature Center which took over ten years of planning to make a reality.

Demolished and replaced four crime-infested motels with a police station, a fire station, a library, and a community garden.

Negotiated City of Chicago financial incentives for Swedish Covenant to build a new Emergency Room and an innovative Women’s Health Center.

Street resurfacing, new curbs, new sewer lines, new sidewalks, new streetlights, and new alleys in EVERY 40th Ward community.

I believe that all citizens should be treated equally, regardless of gender or sexual orientation.

A longtime supporter of LGBT rights, Pat supported the creation of the city’s LGBT Advisory Council and authored the city’s original human rights ordinance to protect members of the LGBT community.
