Gutierrez For The 30th Ward

Meet Jessica W. Gutierrez

Jessica Gutierrez is a lifelong progressive Democrat, educator, and community organizer running to bring new leadership to the 30th Ward. Jessica was inspired to run for alderman after she helped elect Jesus “Chuy” Garcia to Congress as the campaigns Northside field coordinator. Prior to those campaigns, Jessica was a graduate student in History at Louisiana State University and at Hebrew University in Jerusalem. While at Hebrew University she worked in East Jerusalem as an English teacher in Palestinian public schools. Then, troubled by the growing inequities between rich and poor back home in Chicago, increasing attacks on immigrant communities and the assault on the public, neighborhood schools, Jessica decided to place her studies on hold to return home and fight for working families in her hometown.

Jessica, who grew up on Chicago's Northwest side and graduated from St. Benedict High School, has a BA in Sociology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She resides in Belmont Cragin.

As alderman, Jessica will:

  • Work to ensure full funding of our neighborhood public schools and demand an elected, representative school board for CPS
  • Lead the effort to make our community safer by ensuring more police on neighborhood foot patrols,
  • Better training and public accountability of our police force.      
  • Fight for a fair income tax that makes sure the very wealthy and big corporations are paying their fair share of taxes, ending the practice of neighborhood homeowners subsidizing the property taxes of the wealthy
