Dorothy Brown: Unify the whole city not just one voting bloc
Chicago — One of the candidates for Mayor suggested that he would like to unify the black vote around one candidate. Mayoral Candidate Dorothy Brown challenged the idea of unifying one over another.
“Unity is good. But, I believe that we cannot just unify one community over another,” said Brown. “I am committed to unifying our whole city and respecting Chicago’s rich and diverse ethnic and racial communities. Most important, I am committed to all our neighborhoods and working with all Chicagoans to bring public safety, economic development and clean, safe schools to all of our communities.”
Hi I’m Dorothy Brown candidate for the Mayor of the City of Chicago
It has been suggested that the number of African-American candidates running for Mayor, may split the African-American vote, and there will be no unity.
This is a democracy and having many voices as part of this race, no matter their ethnicity, is good for the city because it will raise the awareness of the serious issues that we face in Chicago and hopefully energize everyone to vote.
As your Mayor, I will be committed to unifying all of the City of Chicago. I will be committed to respecting our city’s rich and diverse heritage. I will work hard to ensure that every neighborhood is clean, safe, and violence free and that no community is left behind.
From Hyde Park to Rogers Park. From Chinatown to West Town. From Little Village to Ukrainian Village. From Humboldt Park to West Garfield Park. From Englewood to Hollywood Avenue. From Midway to O’Hare. From the Devon Corridor to Rosemont. From the Loop to Chatham. From the Gold Coast to the Soul Coast of the South Shore. From Mt Greenwood to Woodlawn. And from Bronzeville to Wrigleyville.
In every enclave of this great city I will work with you to bring criminal justice reform, business growth, economic development and clean, safe, and high quality schools to all of Chicago.
