Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Local NewsIn front of a crowd of supporters, Congressman Jesùs “Chuy” García (IL-04) officially filed his signature petitions for mayor on Tuesday, submitting signatures from nearly 50,000 Chicagoans. This filing comes less than three weeks after Congressman García launched his campaign alongside dozens of supporters and local leaders. “Our city is at a crossroads. We have an opportunity to elect a trusted and experienced leader with a history of building coalitions and a vision for a brighter future for all Chicagoans. We deserve safe communities, equitable schools, affordable housing, as well as opportunities for economic and environmental justice – and that requires new, inclusive leadership that reflects the City of Chicago. Earlier this month, García announced his campaign for Mayor of Chicago alongside local elected officials, community advocates, and neighbors. Pledging to work with Chicagoans to build a brighter future, García said he’s running because it’s time for “a mayor who will bring us together– instead of driving us apart.” In his announcement speech, Congressman García highlighted his proven track record of delivering for Chicagoans from his time working as a community organizer in Little Village to his current role serving as the Representative of Illinois’ 4th Congressional District. He emphasized that with his decades of experience combined with his bold vision for the future, he will chart a new path for the city. After his filing, García shared this last message with the crowd, “That’s why today, with the support of Chicagoans from every corner of our city, I’m proud to officially start our journey towards a safer, more prosperous Chicago for all. We have seen an incredible outpouring of support and we are hitting the ground running. We are ready to win this campaign.”
