John Arena is a dedicated husband and father, community advocate and small business owner running for 45th Ward alderman. His campaign is focused on three pillars vital to the community and city at large.

  • Open, Responsive Government

    The 45th Ward deserves an alderman responsive to the needs of the community. John Arena’s open-door policy and 48-hour turn-around time for constituent requests demonstrate that he will be an advocate for the ward, not simply a cog in the machine.

  • Economic Development

    There are too many empty storefronts in the 45th Ward. John Arena will create a special economic task force both to lure new businesses to the ward and to help struggling 45th ward businesses access the many services available to them from the city.

  • Political Reform

    John Arena is dedicated to changing City Council’s status as a rubber stamp for the mayor’s office by voting independently and supporting efforts to reduce executive power. John Arena is committed to open, honest government, including making the business of governing Chicago available online, in a searchable database accessible to city residents.
