SCRIPT: “Day One”

Alderman Pat Dowell:

I got my start with Mayor Harold Washington.

As an alderman, I’ve delivered resources that have transformed neighborhoods into thriving areas of growth and opportunity.

Now we need a voice in Congress to deliver on the issues that matter.

Protecting our votes;

Stopping gun violence;

Making it easier to afford gas and groceries.

I’m Democrat Pat Dowell. I approve this message because on day one, I’m ready to get the job done for you.
