Daley Says Give Stroger Time

Chicago Mayor Richard Daley says Cook County Board President John Stroger and his family shouldn’t be pressured into answering questions about his political future.

Stroger suffered a massive stroke almost 3 months ago, and has not been seen in public since.

Daley addressed the issue at a senior citizen’s center on Chicago’s South Side.

“Let’s give a little time in regards to this,” Daley said.

“I think that’s what the issue’s all about. I know a lot of you - the press - would like to bury him, but he’s gonna be alive and well.”

Daley added that he personally has no role to play in any decision about Stroger’s future.
