Who will be the Chicago mayor in 2015?
A first look at the Chicago Mayoral election 2015.
I’m sure just about everybody has had an assfull of Rahm Emanuel, his TIF funds, and the endless debate on how the Chicago Public School system should be run. But it’s too late now. He’s in office for another 2 1/2 years so its time to play the waiting game. But its never too early to plan ahead. Here’s what’s in store for the Chicago mayoral elections in 2015.
So far I’ve found 2 candidates: John Collins of the Independent party, whose campaign is off to a running start with a Facebook page that has 2 likes. And Rage Against the Machine frontman, Tom Morello.
Okay, so the latter might not actually happen (or the first one for that matter), but it’s all I could find as far as 2015 Chicago mayor campaigns go. The whole “Tom Morello for mayor of Chicago” was really just another failed stunt from Occupy Chicago from when Emanuel pulled a permit for a nurses’ union protest during the NATO summit. Afterwards, Morello apparently said in a Rolling Stone interview, “If Rahm Emanuel is so afraid of my popularity in Chicago maybe I should run against him in the next election.” This apparently fired up Occupy Chicago enough to write an article endorsing him in the 2015 Chicago mayoral election. Which is cute, since I can’t really take the whole “Occupy” thing seriously anymore. But hey, I’ll give ’em an A for effort.
It’s kind of like when your kindergartner brings home a finger painting of the family from school. All you can do is hang it on the fridge and say, “aww, thats cute.”
I’m not saying Tom Morello running for mayor of Chicago would be a bad thing. It would actually be pretty cool. But it’s probably not going to happen.
