Raw video: Ald. Mell on wife’s death, Blagojevich’s impact on family
Ald. Richard Mell, 33rd Ward, announced his retirement earlier this week.
At a news conference Friday, he stated he is “probably one of the luckiest individuals,” except for two incidents. Those incidents, he said, are his wife’s illness and death and the situation with his son-in-law, disgraced and imprisoned former Governor Rod Blagojevich.
