I believe that my neighbors and my community have the right to continue to live and thrive in the 4th district. Gentrification and displacement are changing the face of our neighborhoods, and tearing apart the relationships built on our blocks.  We need solutions to displacement that build affordability right now, but also for the generations to come, so that all those who love their communities can continue to call this district home.

Therefore, Lilian will:

  • Shift the property tax burden away from working families, seniors and long-time residents.
  • Strengthen cultural heritage districts like Puerto Rico Town by providing property tax relief to long-time residents.
  • Increase affordable housing options available to community members that address different stages in the life course.
  • Support rent control for all Illinoisans to help stop the displacement of our neighbors.
