Working Families statement on Chicago mayor’s race

Jon Green, Deputy Director of the Working Families Party, made the following remark about the results of the Mayoral race in Chicago:jesus-garcia

“Rahm’s wealthy donors bought him another term but they couldn’t buy him love. A progressive movement is growing in Chicago and it’s capturing hearts and minds. Three months ago, Rahm thought he was untouchable. He survived the political fight of his life, but he had to move on important issues like the minimum wage and affordable housing. Rahm is still the mayor, but he’s no longer the king.”
