Moseley Braun Expected To Announce Mayoral Bid

Ever since Mayor Daley announced that he wouldn't seek re-election earlier this month we've seen a lot of jockeying. Surprisingly one of the people who seeks his job is former US Senator and Ambassador Carol Moseley Braun. You should now that Moseley Braun also held the President's old US Senate seat from 1993-1998.

Anyway she made her way to Robeson High School @ 6835 S. Normal Blvd. to speak to students. According to CBS2 this occurred last Friday.
She was at Robeson High school Friday, speaking as part of a program to inspire and encourage students to stay in school. Moseley Braun said she hadn't intended to talk politics and promised to do that at a news conference Monday.

Still, she said, "I'm talking to people, I'm listening to people, and I will have a decision is short order." 
As I type this post this press conference has probably already been held at 10 AM the citizen's group Citizens for Carol is expected to announce a petition drive for her at the Hyatt Regency Hotel @ 151 E. Wacker Dr. where she will outline her plans.

I thought it was a great move to come to a neighborhood high school to encourage our young people.

I know there are more recent pictures of the Ambassador that I could've found on the internet. I just liked this one the best. ;)
