Susana Mendoza for Mayor

Cites Mendoza’s Ethics Reform Plan, Commitment to End Aldermanic Prerogative
Ricketts Will Serve as Campaign Co-Chair

CHICAGO, IL – Prominent Democrat and Chicago Cubs co-owner Laura Ricketts today endorsed Susana Mendoza for mayor, citing Mendoza’s strong ethics plan and opposition to aldermanic prerogative. Mendoza’s campaign also announced that Ricketts will serve as co-chair of the campaign.

“Susana Mendoza has outlined an outstanding plan to fight corruption and raise the standard of ethics and accountability in city government,” Laura Ricketts said. “She has consulted with corruption-fighting lawyer and former U.S. Attorney Dan Webb to create a proposal for an Anti-Corruption, Accountability and Ethics Commission that she will create on her first day as mayor. I strongly support her proposals to end the arbitrary and capricious Chicago aldermanic prerogative and expand and strengthen the Inspector General’s oversight of the city council.”

“Laura shares my passion for Chicago, and she knows that we must take bold action to hold elected officials accountable. Chicago deserves better,” Susana Mendoza said. “Having Laura’s endorsement, enthusiasm and knowledge will help build a new and stronger future for our city – a future that includes everyone and that restores faith in government.”

Ricketts has served on the executive committee of the Democratic National Committee and raised campaign funds for former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Ricketts also broke new ground by being the first openly gay professional sports owner.

“Susana’s ethics platform is the most comprehensive proposal of any of the mayoral candidates. She has the experience and determination to ensure her ideas for cleaning up city government are enacted,” said Ricketts. “She will be an energetic mayor who brings Chicago together and leads us into the future. Because of this, she is my candidate for mayor and I’m proud to serve as her campaign co-chair.”
