Meet Gery

“The city of Chicago is as strong and resilient as its people. And once we coalesce the power of everyone – there will be no stopping us.”


A lifelong Chicagoan, Gery Chico knows without a doubt that our city’s best days lie ahead of us. He also knows from a career spent in public service that the one way we achieve that brighter future is by doing it together. Time and again, Gery has answered the city’s call. He’s worked to lead coalitions and unite Chicagoans behind innovative solutions — and he has always delivered results.

Born and raised on the South Side, Gery never left the city. He stayed and fought for it. As President of the Chicago Public Schools, Chair of the City Colleges and President of the Chicago Park District, Gery generated budget surpluses, strengthened public safety and empowered children to reach new levels of academic achievement.

Gery is the type of leader who walks the talk. He takes action. He makes things happen. He creates opportunity.

The city we all love is at a crossroads. It’s time to elect a mayor who already knows how to pull people together and drive Chicago forward – starting on day one. To fight for that better future. Neighborhood by neighborhood. Block by block.

This has been the story of Gery’s life. And it is the reason why he is running for mayor of Chicago.
