The Equality Illinois Political Action Committee (Equality Illinois PAC) is endorsing the re-election of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel in the February 24 municipal election. The Equality Illinois PAC also endorses the re-election of four incumbent LGBT aldermen in Chicago and Springfield.
“Mayor Emanuel has been a leader on LGBT issues in Chicago, and that’s why he’s the choice of Equality Illinois PAC,” said Bernard Cherkasov, CEO of Equality Illinois.
“He has led the city forward and ensured Chicago is welcoming to LGBT families, seniors, workers, and immigrants. Mayor Emanuel was also a crucial ally in our successful fight for the freedom to marry in Illinois.”
