DAVIS ENTERS CANDIDATE POOL FOR MAYOR, ESTABLISHES EXPLORATORY COMMITTEE

As a result of discussions with a large number of individual citizens, groups, elected officials and clergy from diverse sections of the city, I have decided to formally explore the possibility of running for Mayor of the City of Chicago.
The retirement of Mayor Daley will leave a tremendous leadership void and I feel that the city must be organized, united and structured with leadership that will embrace the thoughts, ideas, hopes and aspirations of all people and all communities throughout the city.
Chicago, like most large urban centers throughout the nation is plagued with a plethora of problems; therefore, it is going to need solutions oriented leadership, leadership willing to face realities head on, willing to engage the people, willing to assemble the most talented people that can be found and willing to listen.
I believe that I can pull it together. Therefore, we begin circulating nominating petitions today.

Some of you old heads need to just fade away from public office. Please do this for younger generations to have opportunities to bring the communities together. It is apparent what ever plans some of the previous Black politicians had implemented did not work.

Please move out of the way. And I say that with respect.
