Ald. Bob Fioretti Throws Hat into Mayor’s Race

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Alderman Bob Fioretti (2nd) announced he's running for mayor of Chicago.

His agenda is expected to include a one-percent commuter tax, an elected school board and a $15-an-hour minimum wage.  He's also expected to campaign for reopening the mental health clinics that Mayor Rahm Emanuel closed and support the hiring of at least 500 additional police.

If Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis joins Fioretti in the race, it will probably make it tougher for Emanuel to get the 50 percent-plus-one he needs to avoid a run-off.
