Wilson gains two more endorsements for mayoral run as Tenuta, NWSGOP make it official
Sammy Tenuta has become the latest republican lawmaker to formally throw his support behind democrat Willie Wilson’s run for mayor of Chicago.
In a statement, the 36th Ward GOP committeeman wrote, “I am officially endorsing Willie Wilson to be mayor of Chicago. Willie not only is a great businessman, but the ideas he has are great . . . support for Law Enforcement by providing more tools to fight crime, Property Tax Cap to help Working Families and bringing in New Businesses in our Communities, including the Down Trodden areas which need help the most where it would decrease crime.”
Tenuta also praised Wilson for his fierce independence.
“Willie is not part of any machine and has committed to working with our great President, Donald J. Trump, who is making America strong again,” he wrote. “Willie will work hard for all of Chicago.”
The 70-year-old Wilson also recently bagged the endorsement of the Northwest Side GOP Club (NWSGOP), with the group touting him as "a self-made businessman who believes in free enterprise," in a Feb. 1 news release.
