I am thoroughly impressed with her extensive career in neighborhood planning in which she had enjoyed tremendous success prior to being elected as a Chicago Aldermen.” says Mayor Bryant.

Mayor Bryant adds, “In my past travels to the Bronzeville community, one can witness firsthand the impact Alderman Dowell has had on the quality of life for those who reside there. This speaks volumes to her passion of building and improving communities. She is exactly who we need in Congress but moreover, who we need representing Robbins.”

“Robbins Mayor Darren E. Bryant has made history as the youngest Black mayor in Illinois. He has fresh, new ideas for his community, and I am honored to receive his endorsement.
