Statement about Rep. Jesus "Chuy'' Garcia entering the Mayor's race:
The Mayor's race is about what you can do for Chicago today, not who you rubbed elbows with 35 years ago. With all due respect to Rep. Garcia, he served under Harold Washington for 19 months before Mayor Washington passed.
Rep Garcia has found his way into a variety of offices over the years, but he hasn't been a part of our city leadership or our legislation or our budgeting for more than 30 years.
I had the tremendous opportunity to sit with Mayor Washington on several occasions, as he would give me advice on how to navigate law school. My father was very close to Mayor Washington, serving as both his Rules committee chairman as well as his President Pro-tempore in the City Council.
I grew up with Mayor Washington visiting my father's office regularly as our State Senator and Congressman. He was a friend to our family, and even I haven't tried to wrap myself in his legacy the way Rep. Garcia has.
I don't think the best way to announce a so-called "unity'' campaign is to appropriate the legacy of one of the most beloved African American leaders in Chicago history.
