for Alderman of the 36th Ward

Gil Villegas is a U.S. Marine, Teamster, & Dad running for re-election in Chicago’s 36th Ward. 100% pro-choice, Gil has fought for lower property taxes, paid sick leave, a higher minimum wage, women's reproductive rights, increased funding for public schools, and public safety -- putting more cops on the street & addressing the root causes of crime like poverty & mental health.

A life of service. Delivering opportunities for working families.

When Gil Villegas was eight years old his father died suddenly, forcing his family to rely on Social Security, public housing, and food stamps to make ends meet. After high school, Gil joined the Marines and served overseas in Desert Storm. When he returned home, Gil became a union bread truck driver and was elected into leadership to help fight for liveable wages.
