Surging Vallas Campaign Picks Up Another Key Endorsement
Mayoral candidate Paul Vallas picked up another major endorsement today, with Alderman Brian Hopkins announcing his support for the surging Vallas campaign. Alderman Hopkins has represented the 2nd Ward since 2015 and has been a consistent voice for good government, accountability and protecting Chicago taxpayers from increased cost of living.
“I know that Paul Vallas is the best candidate in this race to bring honesty and accountability to City Hall and to ensure that we are investing in the right programs and initiatives to improve quality of life,” said Alderman Hopkins. “Paul’s extensive plans on critical issues like public safety, education and economic development are exactly what Chicago needs, and I’m proud to endorse his campaign today.”
Vallas has been surging in the polls in recent weeks and picked up a major endorsement just days ago, when Alderman Tom Tunney announced his support. He was also endorsed this morning by the Chicago Tribune Editorial Board.
“I’m incredibly proud to earn Alderman Hopkins’ endorsement and I look forward to working with him to make our city more affordable for residents and invest in critical priorities facing our community,” said Vallas. “Our campaign is gaining more momentum every day as more and more Chicagoans see that there’s only one candidate who will put crime reduction and public safety first, and we will continue to push hard through the finish line.”
