MAYORAL CONTENDER Bill Dock Walls III
MAYORAL CONTENDER Dorothy Brown
Dorthy Brown was glad Congressman Bobby Rush had not given Daley an endorsement after hearing him say. He felt Daley has done a great job and proceeded to tick off Daley's accomplishments and ended by telling reporters that "across the board, I think Mayor Daley deserves another term."
Later, Brown spoke to Rush and said she was "pleased to hear that his words did not constitute an endorsement. However, endorsement or not, Rush's remarks about Daley's administration are in stark conflict with the facts."
Daley and Rush appeared together Wednesday at the Illinois Institute of Technology, where the school's newly renovated Technology Business Center was unveiled and IIT officials announced a full scholarship program for qualified Chicago Public Schools graduates.
The program will be open to all graduates whose families earn less than $40,000 a year and who meet IIT's stringent admission standards. The school's 2006 freshman class had a mean grade-point average of 3.88 on a 4-point scale, an average SAT score of 1286 and an average ACT score of 28. http://www.voteforbusiness.com/portal/il_chamber/article_detail.aspx?id=I2160930602
