CTU members Daniel Burke and Paula Barajas are two of hundreds of rank-and-file members out in the field, knocking on doors, supporting our mayoral candidate Brandon Johnson, 36th Ward aldermanic candidate Lori Torres Whitt and other education champions seeking to transform city hall this year. Read their report from the field.
Every time CTU Vice President Jackson Potter heads out canvassing, he has doubts. Will people answer their doors? Will they take a few minutes to listen? Will it make a difference in who they vote for or the issues they prioritize? The answer is a resounding, yes!
In just five weeks, Brandon Johnson’s campaign for mayor has drawn support from every corner of the city, building a multi-racial, progressive movement to transform Chicago. Team Brandon is on the move, but he needs our help.
CTU organizer and mayoral candidate Brandon Johnson credits his large family with teaching him how to negotiate, collaborate and refuse to accept “no” for an answer — traits he’s used well in his career as an educator, organizer, and county commissioner because, “When you’re fighting for what our students and communities need, you never take ‘no’ for an answer.”
