"Weidner made the announcement during Prospect Heights Community Living Center's annual friends and family party Wednesday night.

As far as I'm concerned, Sandy Weidner is the only candidate running who gives a damn about the people of this city. Time after time, she stood up to lying John when all the other Common Council members cowered in fear. If she becomes mayor, I hope she appoints a special counsel to investigate the crimes that lying John has committed against the city.
