Bill Peduto announced his official running for the Mayor yesterday.
“Bill Peduto, even though he’s relatively young, has significant experience — probably, it can be argued, as significant experience as the mayor does,” said John Brabender, a South Side-based political consultant.
“The strangest part has been going from the fresh young voice in city government to its elder statesman,” Mr. Peduto said.
I’ve never considered Billy to be either a “fresh young voice” or an “elder statesman.” I’ve always considered him to be the City Council member who oddly gives me the heebie jeebies, yet I haven’t a clue why.
I think it’s his hair. Or his nose. Or his two chins. Or … him.
