‘Chuy for Chicago’ political committee created to raise money for potential Garcia mayoral run


Jesus “Chuy” Garcia hasn’t gotten into the Chicago mayoral race yet, but a close associate of the Cook County commissioner has started a political committee to begin raising money for the potential campaign.

The “Chuy for Chicago” committee was created Wednesday with the State Board of Elections “to explore the candidacy of Jesus ‘Chuy’ Garcia for mayor of the city of Chicago,” according to a statement of organization posted on the board’s website.

The committee’s chairman, Manuel Perez, has been managing Garcia’s campaign for U.S. Congress. He said that while Garcia didn’t oversee the creation of the committee, “he didn’t object to it.”

“We told him we were going to do it,” Perez said. “He has been thinking about (running for mayor), and he’s leaning in that direction.”
