Dolton mayoral race a real fight

Dolton mayoral hopeful Riley Rogers gets first crack at breaking up what's left of the late Mayor William Shaw's administration.

Rogers is set to square off with Shaw's handpicked successor, Mayor Ronnie Lewis, in Tuesday's Democratic primary.

So far, the primary showdown has been a slugfest.

In December, Rogers supporter Elliott R. Kozel was arrested and charged with punching Dolton inspector general Robert Shaw, the late mayor's twin brother.

Since then, Rogers claims Lewis's campaigners and Dolton employees have systematically removed his campaign signs from all over the city.
Important here, because Ronnie Lewis was once a teacher and an assistant principal at our very own Harlan High School.
