CHICAGO – The following is a statement from SEIU Illinois State Council President Tom Balanoff:

“The SEIU Illinois State Council—which represents 150,000 janitors, home and health care workers, higher education faculty, security officers, doorstaff, public employees and others— congratulates Jesus ‘Chuy’ Garcia on his victory in Illinois’ 4th Congressional District.

“Garcia is the progressive champion we need in Congress to stand up for all Americans and against the Trump Administration’s dangerous attacks on workers, women, the LGBTQ community, immigrants and the environment.

“From his commitment to raising the minimum wage to $15 to expanding affordable healthcare access and protecting immigrant families, Garcia will be a strong ally in Congress for the working families of Illinois. We look forward to working alongside him on these critical issues.”
