Two candidates running for mayor in south suburban Dixmoor are related.
They’re mother and son.
Wendy and Randall Casey are two of the four candidates on the ballot today.
They say political talk is strictly avoided in their home.
Randall refuses to label his mother as a rival, and says he’s running for the people, not against any one candidate.
Wendy jokingly said that she wishes she could evict her son.
Randall’s father is former Dixmoor Mayor Donald Luster.
He resigned in 2004 after being convicted of unemployment benefits fraud.
