Coalition "Disappointed" In Davis Withdrawl

Chicago - On New Year's Eve, Congressman Danny Davis announced his withdrawl from the race for mayor of Chicago.  Davis' decision followed weeks of pressure from African American leaders who believed that only a consensus black candidate would have a chance to beat former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel and other prominent contenders in the race to replacing retiring Mayor Richard Daley.


The announcement prompted this statement from the Chicago Coalition:

 

 

 

 

The Executive Committee, of the Chicago Coalition, is disappointed and surprised that the consensus candidate, Congressman Danny Kenyatta Davis, has chosen to withdraw

from the race for Mayor. The Coalition continues to work on the agenda that will address the needs of the people and their greater inclusion in the affairs of the next administration of the city of Chicago.
