Illinois Comptroller and former mayoral candidate Susana Mendoza endorsed Lori Lightfoot for mayor on Saturday in videos filmed in both English and Spanish. Comptroller Mendoza’s endorsement comes as Lightfoot continues to earn support from key leaders and advocacy organizations including Ja’Mal Green, Illinois Nurses Association PAC, Dr. Timuel D. Black, Congressman Mike Quigley, and Congressman Chuy García within the past week alone.

“On April 2, Chicago voters will make one of the most important decisions about Chicago’s values and future – and not just for the next four years, but the next generation,” said Mendoza. “Everyone deserves to share in this city’s promise. Not just a few. And that’s why I ran for mayor. To everyone who voted for me – and even those who didn’t – know that I’ll never stop fighting for you. And I also know a good fighter when I see one, and she’s running for mayor. That’s why I’m endorsing Lori Lightfoot for mayor of Chicago. I hope you’ll join me in voting for Lori Lightfoot for mayor so we can keep fighting for Chicago‘s future together.”

“At this critical time for our city, I’m so proud to have Susana Mendoza’s endorsement for mayor,” said Lightfoot. “Susana has been a fighter for Chicago’s neighborhoods and a voice for lifting up the working families in our city. I’m honored to have her support and look forward to working with her to build a City government that puts our neighborhoods first.”
