In response to tonight’s results in the Chicago mayoral election, Working Families Party National Director Maurice Mitchell said: 

“This is a win for the history books. Brandon Johnson just defeated a deluge of far-right money and misinformation thanks to people power and his positive vision for a safe and thriving Chicago. We have never been more proud to stand with Brandon, or with our local partners at United Working Families, who have been organizing for years to make this moment possible. 

“Now comes the hard work of building a Chicago for the many, with strong schools, good jobs, and safe communities. We look forward to working with Brandon and the new class of Working Families alder members to reopen mental health clinics, pass universal childcare, and implement a local Green New Deal.”
