Pro-Chicago Voted!

Yesterday, Chicago held a historic election that elected our new Mayor, Rahm Emanuel. Voters also demonstrated the strength and value of the Pro-Chicago agenda.

Because of your support 100% of the 20 members of the Jobs & Growth Caucus won their Aldermanic elections. In addition, 35 out of 36 of CCC PAC’s endorsed candidates either won their elections or are heading to a runoff. Now four of the Jobs & Growth Caucus members are heading into a run-off election on April 5, 2011, after winning a plurality of votes in their respective wards.

Help us support the Jobs & Growth Caucus by investing in Pro-Chicago today. Your investment of $5,000, $2,500, $1,000 is needed immediately to help our candidates. Please make your contribution now and show us that you are Pro-Chicago!
