Sun-Times: Ald. Sawyer says Preckwinkle will join crowded mayoral field this week

I'm trying to figure out how to insert Ald. Roderick Sawyer's potential interest in the mayor's office although he said in a Chicago Tonight appearance that the best place for him is Alderman of the 6th Ward. Meanwhile he knows that county board president Toni Preckwinkle could throw her hat into the ring to succeed Rahm Emanuel.
Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle will announce her run for mayor this week, the chairman of the City Council’s Black Caucus said.

Ald. Rod Sawyer (6th) told the Sun-Times he talked to Preckwinkle on Monday and the veteran County Board president told him she plans to enter the crowded race.

Another alderman, who asked not to be identified, also said they’d been told by Preckwinkle she is in.

A spokesperson for the Preckwinkle camp, however, would not confirm any plans. Other sources said Preckwinkle’s announcement is scheduled for Thursday at 3 p.m.

“She has the ability to raise money. She has a decent message. But we also have a lot of people running or expressing interest,” Sawyer said.
Want an official word, we have to wait until Thursday....
