Blogging Event and forum
Meet Miguel del Valle: A Mayor For All Chicago… For Every Neighborhood!
For more than three decades Miguel del Valle has been an independent voice, tireless community advocate, and a dedicated public servant for people in Chicago and the State of Illinois. He has fought for open and transparent government, stronger consumer protections, and for reform and better funding for education, healthcare and social service programs throughout his 23-year tenure in the Illinois General Assembly and as the Chicago City Clerk.
His political career began in 1982 by campaigning for his friend and ally Harold Washington. It was that historic mayoral victory that inspired del Valle to seek a career in public service. He realized that if elected to the State Senate he could create policies and laws that would bring greater change to the community he was working for as a community advocate and not-for-profit director.
