A Candidate with Proven Commitment to the Ward and Passion for this Community

The solution exists! Robert Murphy helped draft the FAiR Policy Statement, which has been adopted by over 20 elected officials, including both Congressmen Quigley and Schakowsky.

  • More noise monitors have been added - thanks to your efforts!
  • Federal officials are pushing for FAA changes - thanks to your efforts!
  • Ineffective officials have been removed - thanks to your efforts!
  • The conversation has changed - thanks to your efforts!

The current alderman has refused to advocate for residents and ask the mayor for a meeting. Robert Murphy has been in front of the O’Hare noise and pollution issue for more than two years. Together with a handful of neighbors, Robert started and helped build Fair Allocation in Runways (FAiR) into a powerful coalition of more than 1,600 residents to lobby the City of Chicago for common-sense changes at O’Hare.

When Robert Murphy met with Marge Laurino for help to get a meeting with Mayor Emanuel, she refused and told him to call the mayor himself. As your alderman, Robert Murphy will sit down with the mayor and other municipalities about the O’Hare issue. Because after more than $5 billion spent on the O’Hare Modernization Plan, the airport is ranked dead last in on-time arrivals and departures.

And still the planes keep coming...

Electing Robert Murphy will bring the mayor to the table to devise community-based solutions.

Robert Murphy has declared his intention of running for 39th Ward Committeeman against the current alderman's husband whose hold on the post has ensured the continuence of 52 years of one family rule.   "The residents and voters of the 39th Ward deserve new leadership and new ideas during these challenging times," said Robert.  "The current committeeman has supported those in his family that have led to our city and state to the brink of insolvency.  It is time for this cycle of dysfunction to end."

Robert Murphy endorsed by the Chicago Tribune for 39th Ward Alderman.

"Our pick is Murphy, who says he began knocking on the alderman's door shortly after his house was mapped into the 39th Ward. He wanted improvements to Forest Glen Avenue; he wanted Laurino to help set up a meeting with the mayor about O'Hare International Airport. What he got, he says, was "lip service." Murphy wants to develop walkable retail districts so shoppers stay close to home instead of driving to Niles and Lincolnwood. He wants to partner with City Colleges to train workers for the light industrial strip that runs down the middle of the ward. He has a far greater sense of urgency about city finances than does Laurino."
