Illinois State Representative Margaret Croke, District 12

"I have worked with Julie as my Chief of Staff for the past four years. Her dedication to public service, collaborative spirit, and expertise make her ideal to represent residents on one of the most complex issues we face: police accountability and creating long-term safety in every zip code."

-- Cook County Commissioner Scott Britton

“I worked with Julie during a period of historic reform. We launched body-worn cameras, Narcan, and crisis intervention training in a single year, while working to keep communities safer. At every step, Julie worked to keep the public informed. Her compassion, knowledge, and perspective make her the voice I would want on my team, every single time.”

-- Walter Katz, former Deputy Chief of Staff for Public Safety for the City of Chicago

“I partnered with Julie to lead the Sheriff’s Office, Forest Preserve Police, and numerous north suburban suburbs in adopting the 10 Shared Principles for building trust between the community and police. More than that, she led challenging conversations between residents and police officers. I am impressed with Julie’s skills and they will serve Chicago residents well. I strongly endorse her.”
