Online PR News – 30-January-2015 – Chicago, Illinois – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CHICAGO- The Chicago Latino Public Affairs Committee (CL PAC) has announced endorsements in several key Chicago political races for the February 24th elections. “Our PAC is committed to helping elect candidates who will best serve the interests of the Latino community and prioritize the business and entrepreneurship issues facing minority owned business owners and executives,” said CL PAC Board Member, Pedro Cervantes.
The CL PAC’s support of the reelection of Rahm Emanuel for Mayor of Chicago reaffirms the PAC’s mission of supporting candidates that understand not only the Latino community, but more specifically the Latino business agenda.
CL PAC will formally announce its endorsements at the Endorsed Candidates Rally on February 12th at John Barleycorn, 149 W. Kinzie, from 5-8pm in Chicago’s River North neighborhood. Invited guests include Mayor Rahm Emanuel, as well as all other endorsed candidates.
CL PAC has also announced its support of the following candidates for Chicago City Council:

CL PAC takes pride in rousing community support for candidates in which it believes. The PAC understands the importance of traditional fundraising methods and the impact of inspiring support at the ground level by enlisting motivated volunteers who inspire voter engagement by knocking on doors, logging hours at phone banks, and truly getting out the vote. “As Latino professionals it is incumbent upon us to engage in the political process to make certain our voice is part of the dialogue,” said CL PAC Board Member, Korina Sanchez. Ms. Sanchez added, “Latinos need to understand the importance of civic engagement, otherwise, our growing numbers will continue to be viewed as just that, and nothing more.”
Established in 2010, the Chicago Latino Public Affairs Committee (“CL PAC”) is a business-oriented, non-partisan, non-membership based political action committee supported by business owners and business advocates. CL PAC’s supporters pull from a wide range of backgrounds including, but not limited to, finance, manufacturing, law, construction, and medicine. By combining the resources and efforts of its supporters, CL PAC seeks to influence elections that play a key role in the spheres of business and education.
