Chico Picks Up Chicago’s Latino Cops’ Endorsement
Mayoral hopeful, Gery Chico picked up an endorsement this week from yhr Latin American Police Association (LAPA) and the Mexican American Police Organization (MAPO).
LAPA President Michael Chuchro said, “We are supporting Gery because he best reflects the value of Chicago’s law enforcement community, “ adding that, “He will be a great mayor and we will do whatever we can to get him elected.”
Both Rahm Emanuel and Miquel Del Valle looked to pick up LAPA’s endorsement, but considering Chico was once named their “Person of the Year,” the organization’s decision is not that surprising.
MAPO President Sergio Flores said, “ Gery’s experience tackling some of the city’s toughest challenges and succeeding against all odds, make him the best suited to be our next mayor.”
