A personal note from William J. Kelly: 

Henry David Thoreau once said, “Nature abhors a vacuum.” This is also true of politics especially in the City of Chicago - a city that some might call a force of nature. I call Chicago the only home I have ever known and the greatest city in the world.  Which is why it pains me that the current vacuum of leadership in Chicago has been filled with headlines of the financial crisis, crime, and corruption. Today, I am stepping into the vacuum and I intend to fill it:  first, with my unconditional love of the City of Chicago and second, with an unwavering faith in the real people of Chicago.

This endeavor is fraught with danger but, as we all know from studying the great history of our beloved Chicago, the greatest danger is to do nothing.  Chicago is a real city and a real city deserves a real Mayor.  

That's why I'm asking you to join our effort to term limit Rahm Emanuel. This is a binding referendum for the November 2018 ballot. We have more than half of the signatures we need to get the referendum on the ballot and we have less than eight weeks to get the remaining signatures. Together, we can do this. If passed, Rahm Emanuel will be unable to run for a third term in 2019 and the City of Chicago will have a new mayor!


Thank you, God bless you, and let's make it Chicago again!


Call to Action
