Felicia N. Bullock

Office
Running for State Representative, Illinois, District 5 (2018)

Biography
Felicia is a lifelong resident of Illinois who has lived on the Southside of Chicago all of her life. She is a product of the Chicago Public School system for both elementary and high school. She attended Northern Illinois University (NIU) for her undergraduate education where she received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science. While attending NIU, Felicia was elected Senator of the NIU Student Association, where she served the student body for two terms. In 2008, Felicia joined Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc., a community service organization where she participated in numerous community service activities and events.

Graduating college during the recession meant looking for jobs that may not necessarily line up with her future goals in order to pay back student loans. Felicia landed a job in purchasing for a trucking company. Thriving in this environment, Felicia stayed in the procurement field for the next seven years. She currently works for the University of Chicago as a Senior Buyer. Although she enjoyed working in the private sector, Felicia always had a heart for politics and longed to be a public servant in the future. As life would have it, the seat for Illinois State Representative in her district became an open seat, and she has taken this opportunity to follow her dreams.

Felicia has been married to her husband Bart for two years. The couple has quite a unique story where they met in preschool, lost touch, and were reunited right before Bart left Chicago for Howard University. They are proud residents of the Bronzeville neighborhood, where they enjoy cooking and a good movie for their weekly date night.

Priorities

Education

As a legislator, I will fight for an elected school board. I believe this is paramount for the success of not just students, but parents as well. The community should have a say in who sits on the school board. The board makes incredibly important decisions that affect our children. We should be more involved in those decisions and the process of choosing those who make them.

Healthcare

Healthcare is a right, not a privilege. Everyone in the state deserves access to quality and affordable healthcare. We need to get to the point where we view this issue as a simple human rights issue. As State Representative, I will fight to protect government related healthcare programs, such as Medicare and Medicaid. I will fight for funding other vital programs such as our Community Care Program, which offers in home care to our seniors. Governor Rauner made significant cuts to this program, replacing the funding with vouchers for Uber. Our seniors do not deserve this. My very own grandmother was a recipient of the advantages of the Community Care Program. If I wouldn’t put my grandmother in an Uber, I would not do it to the seniors of the community.

Public Safety

As State Representative, I would work hand in hand with the commanders of my police districts and the CAPS program. I will not only publicize programs that are already in place, but I will create more community policing programs where residents, both young and old, will have a chance to interact with officers in an environment that is not inadvertently hostile to young men of color. I truly believe that unity between the community and the CPD can change the environment of our communities for the better. It would be my honor to serve as a catalyst for change in this area.
