It is truly an historic day for Chicago! For the first time, a public school teacher and union organizer has been elected to lead our proud, working class city. Voters recognized that Brandon Johnson was the clear choice, and every Chicagoan will be better off with him at the helm.
I am so proud of you, our IFT members in Chicago and across the state, who worked hard to help get Brandon to the fifth floor. Mayor Johnson’s work to uplift the students, schools, workers, and businesses in Chicago will positively impact our entire state. I thank all our members who donated their time and energy to Brandon’s campaign.
We look forward to working with our union brother Mayor-elect Brandon Johnson to help make his inspiring vision for Chicago a reality for us all.
IFT President Dan Montgomery
