Gery Chico To Run For Chicago Mayor...Again

If at first you don’t succeed, give it another try. That’s what Attorney Gery Chico is doing.Chico launched his second bid for Chicago mayor Thursday- after a run in 2011 against Mayor Emanuel- who recently said he wouldn’t seek a third term. Chico became the second person to join the race after Emanuel’s surprising announcement. Chico is no stranger to government: he served as chief of staff to former Mayor Richard M. Daley from 1992 through 1995. He was president of the Chicago Public Schools Board, head of the Parks District Board, and chairman of the City Colleges of Chicago. He also ran for U-S Senate in 2004. Chico says he's running again because we need a safer and stronger Chicago.
