Chicago Tonight: Aldermen Discuss Priorities for Mayor’s Next 9 Months #6WardChicago

6th ward Ald. Roderick Sawyer appeared on Chicago Tonight with Ald. Gilbert Villegas (36), Ald. John Arena (45), and Ald. Brian Hopkins (2). They discussed not only whether or not they would run for mayor, the mayor's decision to no seek a third term, and of course what his priorities are going to be for the remainder of his term.

Ald. Sawyer was the only one who answered the questions about his mayoral aspirations. Also bear in mind that the alderman is also the son of Mayor Eugene Sawyer who served for two years after the death of Mayor Harold Washington from 1987 to 1989. Sawyer discussed being in the family of a Mayor of Chicago.

All the same Ald. Sawyer indicated that if the voters of the 6th Ward so choose he would continue to serve them. He believes this is the best place for him at this point in time. He did indicate he made some calls with this especially noted in a Sun-Times article earlier this week. I suppose I can't blame him if you're going to go for such an important office the time is now! Who knows when the next opportunity will come around?
