Aida Flores

Chicago Alderman, 25th Ward, IL

2023 Endorsement

Aida is an educator currently serving as Assistant Principal at Darwin Elementary, a Chicago public school. She holds a BA from Georgetown University, a master’s degree in teaching from National-Louis University, and a master’s in education from the Harvard University Graduate School of Education. Flores has served as Principal and former Local School Council Member-Student Representative at Benito Juarez High School.

During her time as an educator, she has served as an administrator in Boston where she helped a neighborhood community school overcome their 20 year record on probation. She helped launch dual language primary schools—programs that promote accessible, enriching education environments that bring students closer together and to embrace differences.

Aida knows firsthand that the challenges her community faces can seem overwhelming. She’s running to be the next Alderwoman because she knows we can do better.

Families in Pilsen and Little Village are struggling to make ends meet in the face of inflation and stagnant wages. Seniors are fighting to stay in their homes as regressive taxes increase. Young people are forced out of the community every day by skyrocketing rent, and the public school educators and administrators need more support to provide children the attention they deserve. More equitable choices that ensure every member of the community has an opportunity to build a life beyond surviving is important. Aida will fight for a future in which everyone has a chance to thrive.
