Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - BusinessTerry Link, Mayoral candidate for Waukegan, received major endorsements from Senators Iris Martinez, William Delgado, Tony Muñoz, and Martin Sandoval during a press conference at Tolucas Restaurant in Waukegan, IL Tuesday afternoon.

According to Sen. Martinez, Link garnered support due to his diligent work in creating equal opportunities for Latinos residing in his city. “Waukegan faces big challenges, but I know that Terry Link is the right leader to bring real progress to this city,” said Sen. Martinez. “I’ve worked with Terry for years in the State Senate and have watched him fight tirelessly for the needs of Latino families. He’s a friend to our community and we should all support him as the next mayor of Waukegan.”

In the State Senate, Link voted to pass the Illinois Dream Act. He also worked to pass the SB 957, allowing undocumented immigrants to obtain a driver’s license. “I’m a lifelong Waukegan resident. I love this city,” said Link. “We can brink jobs back to Waukegan, stop the gang violence, and keep families in their homes. But it will take new leadership who believes in working closely with our Latino community to make it happen.” Latinos will rally to get people to the polls on election February 26th. Terry Link is endorsed by the following:

Rita Mayfield, State Representative District 60
Diane Hewitt, Lake County Commissioner District 2
Waukegan Firefighters Local 473
