Born in Chicago, IL and raised with his two siblings by their parents, Raul Montes, Jr. learned early on the value of hard work, teamwork, and perseverance. He graduated at the top of his high school class and led his community to understand the dynamics of perseverance by way of vigilent grassroots protest.
Montes' academic prowess and leadership abilities earned him a scholarship to an Ivy League school, where he graduated as an honor student with a bachelors degree in criminal justice. He spent his whole life volunteering for the community, in addition to volunteering for a variety of other charitable causes.
Today, Montes wants to serve as your voice in Chicago. A voice that echoes your concerns. A voice that matters. A voice that cares.
