Jim Mullen, the plain-clothes Chicago cop shot in the line of duty 14 years ago and left a quadriplegic, will announce his candidacy for alderman of the 41st Ward on Sunday.
"I wanted to be a police officer to serve and protect," Mullen said at his Edgebrook home Thursday. "It's my chance to serve and protect the people of the 41st Ward as alderman."
- Mullen is one of two officers shot in the line of duty in the race. Chicago Police Sgt. Richard Gonzalez is also running. Gonzalez runs a company, RMS, that manages 2,500 properties in a four-state area.
We need some voices at the table. This might be the election to do it.
