CHICAGO (AP) - Former White House chief of staff Bill Daley is making his Illinois gubernatorial bid official.
He's set to remove his "exploratory committee" label Tuesday by filing paperwork with the Illinois Board of Elections. So far, he's Gov. Pat Quinn's only 2014 Democratic primary challenger.
In a video on his campaign website, Daley says the fact that the state Legislature adjourned in May without finding a solution to the pension crisis or voting on same-sex marriage represents a "dysfunction."
He says he's running because of the positive response he's received and he'll work seven days a week.
The brother and son of two longtime Chicago mayors formed his exploratory committee last month, but has already been acting like a candidate. He's stepped out to criticize Quinn's leadership and made statewide tours.
The Clayton branch of Fifth Third Bank was robbed on Monday afternoon.
Police say the suspect entered the bank just before 2PM, handed the teller a note demanding money, and left. The suspect is a middle-aged white man. He is 5'9" tall with a slim build. He drove from the scene in a blue or purple Hyundai that was driven by a woman.
Anyone with information regarding the identity or whereabouts of the suspect is asked to call Clayton police at 314-645-3000.
Families of Normandy students are invited to a town hall meeting tonight.
Officials will discuss how the transfer of students will affect the unaccredited district. 700 Normandy students have applied to transfer to other districts. The meeting will start at 6:30 tonight and be held at the St. Louis County Library branch on Natural Bridge.
Meeting organizers argue that the transfer of that many students could bankrupt the Normandy School District. Normandy is responsible for covering the tuition cost of any transferring student.
