An e-mail from Dan Hynes’s campaign committee just arrived in my inbox. He’s confirming what everybody’s been hearing for a while: he’s going to challenge Pat Quinn for the Democratic nomination for governor.
I just finished reading Chicago magazine’s ode to Ron Huberman. The gist of the story is that he’s a miracle worker sent in by Mayor Daley to rescue the public schools. Lucky us.
Former Daley aide and political schmoozemeister Gery Chico is back, this time heading the board of the Chicago Park District.
