Brian Sleet R.I.P.

Wow! This one caught me off guard!

Mr. Sleet was a young man who is another who when I came to 6th ward events in the capacity of this blog also greeted me with a handshake and a smile. I also found him to be very approachable. I've seen that he was very passionate about tackling the issue of Chicago's sixth ward.

He was a candidate for ward 6 alderman in 2011 and once that election was over served as the chief of staff to Ald. Roderick Sawyer. Then he left that position to be a campaign manager for current state's attorney Kim Foxx and also was an advisor to 4th ward Alderman Sophia King. He was a consultant for Kivvit.

BTW, his passing has been noted in the media with this Sun-Times article and I heard about it on the radio this morning. Also search for Brian Sleet on twitter and you will find a number of tweets paying tribute to him.

Condolences to his family and his many friends.
