Joe Dunne understands that public safety throughout our community and City is our top priority. As Alderman he will work together with neighbors, block clubs, business owners and the police to address and improve safety in our community. Joe will work to make sure our community has the resources to improve overall safety, including foot patrols on key streets and additional job training and mentoring programs for our youth.
