LEN quotes Phelan as telling last night's crowd that "A lot of you have asked me why I’m running for alderman. The short answer is I’m sick of it. I’m sick of the lying, I’m sick of the kids getting killed in our streets, and I’m sick of money being taken from our schools and given away in backroom deals in city hall. I’m sick of it.” More at LEN... Yes, and so is most of Uptown. Chicago's aldermanic elections will be held in February, 2011.
