Fioretti Announcement This Weekend
- Ald. Bob Fioretti (2nd) said Monday he will decide by the end of the week whether to challenge Mayor Rahm Emanuel and revised downward the amount of money he believes it would take to compete with the prolific fundraiser.
Fioretti refused to respond directly to speculation that he would declare his candidacy for mayor on Saturday. But the smile on his face gave it away.
“I’m considering it. I’m seriously considering it,” he said during a break at Monday’s meeting of the City Council Finance Committee.
Fioretti's political adviser Michael Kolenc was less cagey.
"We have a big event planned for Saturday. All we're asking is that people save the day for an important announcement," Kolenc said, promising more details by the middle of the week.
Run Bob run.
