Luncheon: Paul Vallas, Candidate for Mayor of Chicago

Paul Vallas, Candidate for Mayor for the City of Chicago

He was born and raised in a Greek-American household in the Roseland community on Chicago’s South Side.

Chicago is also where his career began. After a long and bumpy academic trajectory, Paul graduated from Western Illinois University and went on to immerse himself in the fiscal and economic wellbeing of the state and later the city, as Revenue and then Budget Director.

When he married his wife, Sharon, former Chicago Police Officer and current TSA agent at Midway Airport, they settled in the Beverly neighborhood of Chicago where they raised their three boys.

Paul’s commitment to the city deepened further when he became the CEO of Chicago Public Schools
