FORMER SENATOR AND CHICAGO CITY CLERK MIGUEL DEL VALLE ENDORSES DELIA RAMIREZ FOR STATE REP. OF IL’s 4th DISTRICT
Chicago, IL (December 20th, 2017) – Former Senator and Chicago City Clerk Miguel Del Valle endorsed Delia Ramirez to represent the heavily-Latino IL 4th House District seat being vacated by Rep. Cynthia Soto.
In a statement, Sen. Del Valle said:
“As State Rep., Delia Ramirez will bring the kind of leadership and fresh perspective that Springfield needs now more than ever. She is a proven community & coalition builder, and the present & future of our Progressive movement. Delia is the kind of leader that will restore our communities’ faith in our political system. I am proud to endorse Delia!”
Delia was placed on the ballot by a grassroots army of 200 volunteers from the 4th House District’s Humboldt Park, Logan Square, East Village, Ukrainian Village, West Town and Wicker Park neighborhoods.
“I am honored to receive Senator Miguel Del Valle’s support. As Illinois first Latino State Senator, it is a privilege to have his experience within our campaign.
Last week, Delia, currently deputy director of the Community Renewal Society, a faith-based social services organization, also received the endorsement of Jesus “Chuy” Garcia and Chicago Teachers Union after a unanimous vote in the CTU House of Delegates. Delia has also recently been endorsed by CTU affiliates United Working Families and Grassroots Illinois Action.
