About Lucy
Lucy Moog is a longtime Democratic activist and a 20-year resident of Lincoln Park. She is running to give the Committeeman position a truly independent voice. Passionate about community action and grassroots organizing, if elected, Lucy will devote herself to mentoring young people in the 43rd Ward – at DePaul University and the local high schools – to encourage activism in politics. Her vision is a ward where citizens are engaged in the political process by advocating on behalf of candidates, issues and causes they care about.

Since her youth, Lucy has been involved in Democratic politics. She led community outreach efforts on four presidential campaigns, as well as numerous gubernatorial and congressional races. She served as the District Director for the 5th Congressional District from 1997 to 2002. In 2007, she took a leadership role to help launch the critically acclaimed environmental advocacy campaign and public art project “Cool Globes: Hot Ideas for for a Cooler Planet,” which has since exhibited in 13 cities worldwide. Moog’s personal Cool Globe creation was selected among myriad finalists to be displayed at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.

After attending Francis W. Parker School in Lincoln Park, Moog studied government and psychology at Connecticut College. Immediately after graduation, Moog moved to Washington, D.C. to work on Capitol Hill as a legislative assistant focusing on health care and reproductive rights issues.

After spending five years in Washington, Lucy returned to Lincoln Park to live, work and raise a family.

Lucy is a member of the Board of the Chicago Sinai Congregation and serves on the Advisory Committee of Chicago Ideas Week’s YOU(th) initiative. She is a dedicated volunteer with Personal PAC, the Know Tomorrow movement and Francis W. Parker Parents’ Association.

A devoted Cubs fan through thick and thin, Moog and her husband live with their three boys in Lincoln Park.
