Del Valle Still In for Mayor

2010_11_del_valle.jpg City Clerk Miguel Del Valle held a press conference Monday to dispel rumors that he was dropping out of the race for mayor. “Under no circumstances will I leave the race for mayor,” Del Valle said, responding to a column published over the weekend by Michael Sneed claiming that he's “negotiating for a top position with the Chicago Public Schools in exchange for his exit from the mayoral race.”

Del Valle chalked the column up to political dirty tricks to negatively impact his run for mayor. “The rumor that is circulating is a political trick that is being used to negatively affect our campaign, and I will not permit such a rumor to circulate … I want to assure the public that we are in the race until the end, and that we are going to win this race,” he said.
