Ruth Cruz: Just another part of the machine.
All voters need to know that Ruth Cruz is part of the old, corrupt Chicago political machine and will put her own interests ahead of Chicagoans’. Her top backer took kickbacks in exchange for favors and was investigated for corruption, and now he’s trying to hand over his seat to her to do more of the same. If elected, she’ll continue to help herself instead of advancing policies to help fix Chicago.
Todos los votantes deben saber que Ruth Cruz es parte de la vieja y corrupta maquinaria política de Chicago y antepondrá sus propios intereses a los de los habitantes de Chicago. Su principal patrocinador recibió sobornos a cambio de favores y fue investigado por corrupción, y ahora está tratando de cederle su asiento para que haga más de lo mismo. Si es elegida, continuará ayudándose a sí misma en lugar de promover políticas para ayudar a arreglar a Chicago.
Jessica Gutierrez is a teacher, a mom, and a community organizer who was born and raised on Chicago’s northwest side. She deeply understands the issues facing her community.
Jessica will take our shared community values down to City Hall and bring the resources back - to keep our families safe, our working neighbors thriving - and invest resources right here in the 30th Ward.
Jessica is the pro-choice candidate.
Unlike Jessica’s opponents who are supported and financed by pro-life politicians.
We need an alderman that understands that until a woman’s right to choose is fully restored nationwide, our local elected officials must be the champions of a woman’s right to affordable, comprehensive reproductive healthcare.
Jessica has the leadership skills to...
engage our community and our public safety partners.
She knows that to reduce crime we need to build bridges AND address the root causes like poverty, mental health care, housing and job instability. When we shift to sending social workers to answer non-violent distress calls instead of cops, we will have more units available to patrol our streets and deter crime.
Ruth Cruz & her "defund the police" friends
Ruth Cruz’s campaign is backed and funded by extreme defund the police activists who have voted to take law enforcement off the beat in Chicago. If she is on the council, she will push their agenda of defunding the police, taking cops off the beat, reducing community policing, and increasing 911 response times.
