Trustee Deno Andrews of Oak Park is the latest local elected official to make an endorsement in 7th District contest for U.S. Congress. 

On March 8, Andrews publicly endorsed incumbent Rep. Danny K. Davis to represent Illinois's 7th Congressional District during a Davis campaign event at Robinson's Ribs, 848 Madison St. Davis has represented the district since being first elected in 1996.

"Danny K. Davis has been a proven progressive leader in the House of Representatives, and a beacon of light and hope for so many in the Chicagoland area," Andrews told Wednesday Journal.

"Danny has led this district with humility, grace, and a high level of distinction. I proudly support Danny K. Davis for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives."

Andrews calls both Davis and one of Davis' opponents, Anthony Clark, friends. 

"My endorsement is in no way against Anthony in any way," Andrews said. "I think in this political climate that consistency and experience is important in congress."

Two of Andrews's fellow trustees, Susan Buchanan and Arti Walker-Peddakotla, previously had endorsed Kina Collins, who is also vying for Davis' seat.
