From Crain's:

Mayor Daley says he won't run again

Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley, who has presided over the nation's third-largest city for 21 years, announced Tuesday that he will not run for a seventh term.

Daley, 68, said he'd been thinking about not running for several months and became comfortable with his decision over the past several weeks.

"It just feels right," Daley said at a news conference billed as a major cabinet announcement.

"I've always believed that every person, especially public officials, must understand when it's time to move on. For me that time is now."

He called the announcement "a personal decision, no more, no less" and said he and his family now begin "new phase of our lives."


Sooo, NOW, when her cancer is getting worse, he finally decides to take care his wife, Maggie!
