The Indo American Democratic Organization (IADO) has endorsed Jesus “Chuy” Garcia in his runoff race against Rahm Emanuel for mayor of the City of Chicago tomorrow, April 7th.
“As an organization, we are behind Commissioner Garcia because of his commitment to stand up for working families as they are the people who continue to make this city great,” said IADO President Ram Villivalam. “Mr. Garcia’s vision of lessening the financial burden on people who can afford it the least corresponds with what made it possible for South Asian Americans to achieve the American Dream. I urge everyone to takethe initiative to cast their votes in this runoff election,” said Villivalam.
Garcia’s vision for the city includes violence reduction through more effective community policing, and greater support for public schools, including a democratically-elected school board that will be responsive to people in the neighborhoods.
Garcia, a former Chicago Alderman, Cook County Commissioner, and Illinois Senator has spent the past 30 years in public service.
Garcia, a longtime resident of Chicago and a true advocate for immigrant workers believes in his vision of a Chicago that works for everyone. His integrity and longtime commitment to progressive politics and community organizing is exactly what the city needs to address its myriad challenges.
