LOGAN SQUARE — Mayoral candidate Chuy Garcia has scheduled stop in Logan Square Thursday to rally supporters ahead of the April 7 election.
Garcia’s “Rally for the Neighborhood” starts at 6 p.m. March 12 at the Logan Square Auditorium, 2539 N. Kedzie Blvd.
In the Feb. 24 election, Garcia, a Little Village resident, attracted strong support around Logan Square, Humboldt Park and Hermosa — a base of support second only to the city’s Southwest Side, according to voting data.
That support is bolstered by incoming 35th Alderman Carlos Ramirez-Rosa, who swept the ward vote against Ald. Rey Colon on a progressive platform that included a pledge to support Garcia’s campaign for mayor. Garcia has a campaign office in Logan Square.
The Thursday rally will be followed by a neighborhood canvassing event organized to “build the movement to put out communities and working families first,” according to an announcement.
Garcia faces Mayor Rahm Emanuel in the runoff contest.
The campaign ask those interested in helping canvass following the Thursday rally to call 773-270-5970 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
