Chicago, IL — Today, Congresswoman and House Democratic Senior Chief Deputy Whip Jan Schakowsky endorsed Congressman Jesús “Chuy” García for Mayor of Chicago, the latest in a string of endorsements from elected leaders across Chicago.
“My dear friend Chuy García is a progressive champion with a real history of getting things done for everyday people. I proudly endorse Chuy for Mayor because he has the experience – and most importantly, the heart – to be an effective leader for all Chicagoans. He is the proven coalition-builder that Chicago needs in City Hall,” said Schakowsky. “Chuy is focused on the issues that matter – addressing the root causes of crime in our communities, improving our education system, and defending human rights. I trust Chuy to stand up for women’s rights, including the right to an abortion.”
“Congresswoman Schakowsky is a Chicago legend and dedicated public servant. The people trust and respect the Congresswoman for her unparalleled record of service to our communities. She’s a fighter for climate and economic justice, a defender of democracy, and a champion of reproductive rights. When Jan Schakowsky speaks, Chicago listens, and I am incredibly honored to have her endorsement,” said García. “Our coalition is growing, and it’s built for victory. Today’s endorsement is confirmation of that.”
