Get the Lead Out!
We deserve a clean, safe water supply for our children.
In Chicago, 4 out of 5 of apartments and houses still use lead service lines. In recent years, the lead levels in our drinking water have drastically increased, posing serious health risks, especially to our children.
I believe that it's the job of our elected officials to take responsibility for problems threatening the lives and livelihoods of our residents. The Mayor and City Council should be working on a solution for this problem, not avoiding it.
Will you work with me to make sure our City Council gets the lead out?
1) TEST YOUR WATER
Call 311 to request your FREE kit to test the water quality in your home. It may take several weeks to receive your testing kit from the city.
2) GET INFORMED
Check lead level test results in your area
Find out what your results mean and what you can do
3) TAKE ACTION!
Chicago City Council has refused to hold public hearings on this issue. We are circulating petitions to place a referendum on the November ballot requesting public hearings and action. If you see us on your block, please sign the petition!
