George is committed to improving the quality of life for every resident of the 12th Ward. His top priorities include improving educational opportunities for children, reducing crime, bringing real economic development and job opportunities into the 12th Ward, and providing the highest level of city services possible.

George Cardenas is a strong voice on the Chicago City Council, fighting for a living wage for Chicago’s workers and equitable resources for the southwest side. His fight for TIF reform, and fiscal accountability has set him apart and earned him national recognition. Alderman Cardenas is running for re-election to continue the work of revitalizing our communities and ensuring the 12th Ward is safe for our children and vibrant for our families to thrive.


Every week, dozens of volunteers generously donate their time to show their support for Team Cardenas. Volunteering with friends and family is a great way to meet neighbors, and make positive changes in our community. Sign up to make a difference!
