Heavy donation from developers

Former Marine Gilbert Villegas was elected in 2015 with strong support from his predecessor Nicholas Sposato and Hispanic Chicago politicians Joe Moreno and Luis Arroyo.[1] Arroyo, Moreno and Rahm Emanuel's candidate committees have donated heavily to Villegas, as well as the Chicago Latino PAC.[2]

The 36th Ward was redrawn prior to the 2015 election and is experiencing high population growth due to the influx of Hispanic families to the area.[3] Hoping to take advantage of the demand for housing, many real estate companies and developers donated heavily to his campaign, including A.L.L Masonry Construction Co, Midwest Contractors Association of Illinois, Chicago Land Operators and Zitella Development.[2]

Villegas's number one all-time donor is the Purple Pac.[2]
