Friday, March 13th, 2015 (CHICAGO) –Mayoral Candidate Jesus “Chuy” Garcia formally announced his endorsement of Milly Santiago’s candidacy for the 31st Ward and Gilbert Villegas’ candidacy for the 36th Ward at the Northwest Side for Chuy Rally yesterday in Logan Square.
“Tonight, I am delighted to announce my endorsement of the first Latina in a long time who can be in City Council. We are not being represented when there is not one Latina in City Council. Tonight I endorse Milly Santiago.
As redistricting has created more opportunity for progressives to get elected, tonight, I announce my endorsement for Gilbert Villegas for Alderman of the 36th Ward. These are the likes of individuals that we believe will be part of new coalition in City Council. A coalition that will move our city forward, ensure that government returns to the hands of the people and that Chicago is reclaimed for the neighborhoods. A coalition that believes Chicago is a place where we invest in neighborhoods” said Mayoral Candidate Chuy Garcia.
