Jesus 'Chuy' Garcia reportedly close to entering mayor's race after good poll results

Nov 1, 2022

In today's JUICE: • The Chicago Teachers Pension Fund makes a move in favor of clean energy. • Fitch Ratings looks at some Illinois finances favorably, which doesn't happen too often. Report: Jesus 'Chuy' Garcia is preparing to jump into mayor's race after poll shows promise, by Marcus Gilmer Photo: Bloomberg   After months of speculation , it seems U.S. Rep. Jesus "Chuy" Garcia is preparing to jump into the mayoral fray after a poll commissioned by his campaign shows him leading Mayor Lori Lightfoot in a head-to-head match-up. “It’s further encouragement to consider taking the dive into the race. ... If I sense that there is a way forward and that I can win the support of people across Chicagoland, I’m inclined to do so,” Garcia told the Sun-Times' Fran Spielman , who published the poll results. Garcia may be more inclined after seeing said poll numbers. When faced with all available choices, as they would during the first round of municipal voting, 22% of those surveyed chose Lightfoot while 14% chose Garcia. Willie Wilson, with 12%, was the only other candidate to hit double-digits (if you don't count underdog candidate "not sure," who netted 25%). More importantly for Garcia, when asked to choose between Garcia and Lightfoot as they would in a run-off, respondents chose Garcia 43% to Lightfoot's 34%. It's certainly an eye-catching result even when considering nearly a quarter of those surveyed (23%) were undecided. And, the Sun-Times reports, it's the only match-up where Lightfoot trails a one-on-one challenger: The poll puts her ahead of Paul Vallas, Willie Wilson and new entrant Brandon Johnson. The poll was conducted by Public Policy Polling, which surveyed 616 Chicagoans on October 26 and 27, and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points. As for when Garcia would officially announce his campaign, Fox 32 cites a source as saying Garcia will do so on the 40th anniversary of Harold Washington's announcement for mayor, which would be Thursday, November 10 . None of this is for certain, of course. While  chatter about Garcia's potential candidacy has generated as much discussion as any candidate who's actually announced, it's not official until Garcia says it is—and he's been teasing this for a long time. And since it was Garcia's campaign that commissioned the poll, the results have to be taken with a grain of salt. Crain's will have more as this story—and others around the upcoming mayoral race—unfolds, including the challenges Garcia will face with several candidates, particularly Cook Co. Commissioner Brandon Johnson , already staking a claim to the left of Lightfoot on the political dial. Chicago Teachers Fund votes to divest from fossil fuels, redirect funds to clean energy, by Greg Hinz Photo: Getty   The Chicago Teachers Pension Fund has decided to dispose of its investments in companies that produce fossil fuels unless they invest in clean-energy alternatives. In action at its meeting last week, the board of the huge retirement system—it had $12.1 billion in assets as of June 30—voted to immediately start talking to officials of coal, gas and gas-related companies in which it holds $350 million in stock and debt, 3.3% of its total portfolio. The idea is to push those companies “toward a path of clean renewable energy sources and to divest from fossil fuel holdings and/or to invest in viable clean energy sources to fully offset the fund’s fossil fuel investments by December 2027.” The fund did not name the companies whose stock and bonds it may be forced to divest. “Our board of trustees has long understood that responsible and sustainable investments must form the core of our investment strategy, and our investment policy has included language consistent with the statute which requires the Fund to consider environmental, social, and governance principles when making investment decisions,” said fund Executive Director Carlton Lenoir in a statement. “This most recent step spells out a timeline for action that recognizes the urgent and accelerating global crisis that climate change represents.” Despite having $12 billion in assets, the fund is short roughly the same amount if it is to pay retirees their full promised benefits, the fund said in its most recent actuarial valuation statement. In other news, by Marcus Gilmer • City Council caucuses make budget pitch: The City Council's Black and Latino Caucuses  have wish lists for funding but concede Mayor Lori Lightfoot may already have the votes to pass her plan. • Pritzker's donation workaround: It looks like, as Rich Miller notes at CapFax , that Gov. Pritzker used his trust to donate $500,000 to state Supreme Court candidate Mary O'Brien to "get around the spending caps. "  • SCOTUS hears affirmative action cases: The Supreme Court heard arguments yesterday in a pair of cases that could decide the fate of affirmative action in education.

New report shows Illinois fared better than other states with COVID-related tax cuts, by Greg Hinz Photo: iStock   A new report on the financial condition of some states is actually rather flattering to Illinois for a change. In the review, Fitch Ratings took a look at big tax cuts enacted by dozens of states amid the COVID-recovery spending frenzy and wondered how the biggest cutters would do if that looming recession actually hits. Fitch singled out four for special attention: Nebraska, South Carolina, Idaho and neighboring Iowa. Their cuts were so big, exceeding 4% of revenues, that in the event of a deeper-than-expected economic downtown, they’d face “sharper fiscal challenges with the potential for negative credit pressure if inadequately addressed." Challenges most likely would take the form of more difficult budget-balancing decisions and a reliance on reserves.
