Dear Reader editor,

Your paper recently reported, in an interesting Ted Kleine article about Alderman Helen Shiller and Sandra Reed called “Radical Chick” [April 2], that I in 1996 had run for committeeman in the 46th Ward. In fact, I was for a short time a candidate in the race, but my candidacy was withdrawn on February 13, 1996, weeks before the election in March. My name appeared on the ballot solely because of an administrative error on the part of the Chicago Board of Elections. Please correct this error. Thanks.
