Fioretti to Drop Out?
Ald. Robert Fioretti (2nd) is reconsidering his plans to run for mayor because of what sources close to him are describing as a “health concern,” the Chicago Sun-Times has learned.
Fioretti will announce his intentions for the Feb. 22 municipal general election “no later than Wednesday,” when the full City Council meets after Tuesday’s statewide election, a source close to the alderman said.
“He will be seeking elected office,” the source said of Fioretti — an indication that if Fioretti doesn’t continue his campaign for mayor, he will seek re-election to his aldermanic seat. Under city election law, Fioretti cannot run for both offices.
