CHICAGO — Former 2nd Ward Ald. Bob Fioretti has officially announced he’s entering the Chicago mayoral race.
Fioretti says he’ll be filing nominating petitions containing nearly 40,000 signatures Monday.
He’s joins a crowded field of candidates in the February election.
Fioretti served eight years in the City Council.
He unsuccessfully challenged Mayor Rahm Emanuel in 2015, and lost a bid to unseat Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle earlier this year.
