Join us and members of the host committee to hear why Melissa Conyears-Ervin is running for Chicago City Treasurer.
Born on Chicago’s South Side and raised on the West Side’s Austin neighborhood, Melissa is the youngest of three daughters raised by her single mother, Eula, who often worked overtime, twelve-hour days, at a union glass manufacturing factory to make ends meet.
Now, as a candidate for Treasurer, Melissa plans to focus her private-sector and financial training on ways to bring development into Chicago’s neighborhoods. Chicago’s billions of dollars of municipal deposits should be leveraged to help Chicago communities grow at the same rate, regardless of their zip code. Melissa believes Chicago’s investments should observe a triple bottom line, ensuring city money isn’t used to harm the environment or working families.
