Prairie State Trustee Wendell Mosby Endorses Robin Kelly

Mosby explained his decision to endorse Kelly in an open letter.

Editor's Note: This letter was written before Sen. Toi Hutchinson dropped out of the election.

Being relatively new to the world of politics, this has been one of the most difficult decisions I have had to make thus far. For months, I have been taking copious notes and analyzing the race for the 2nd Congressional District. As a Trustee of Prairie State Community College District #515, I have had the honor to work with members of Congress as I have advocated for supporting community colleges. I take my responsibility as a guardian of the public trust very seriously and I owe a debt of gratitude to my supporters.

As a residents of the 2nd Congressional District, I hosted a debate at my alma mater Rich Central High School because I wanted the issues that I felt were important to residents of the Southland be heard and addressed. To endorse Robin Kelly over my State Senator was not an easy choice. Senator Toi Hutchinson is my Senator and I think she has done a fine job representing the 40th District. She supported the children of my summer camp as we promoted First Lady Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" campaign. She is a great mother and someone whom I have enjoyed working with.

After working tirelessly on the reelection campaign for President Barack Obama, I believe he needs someone that does not have a questionable record as it relates to the agenda he presented to the America people during the State of Union. The President and House Democrats need the support of someone who does not have to spend time defending their record, but can stand united on day one to help move this country forward.

Now with the President's second term secured, Generation 44 is no more. However, this national network of young professional fundraisers has remained intact and will support Democratic candidates that share our values. Our inaugural launch begins with this race and I hope you will join me by supporting Robin Kelly for the United States House of Representatives.

Perhaps it would be appropriate to mention that, Rev. Williams was the next candidate to speak after the discussion between the gentleman, and the Alderman. As I recall all of the candidates expressed regret and outrage over this unfortunate C.P.S. incident. Michael ... A Voter (who has voted) in the 2nd Congressional

This guy will now feel he is mighty and powerful because he "endorsed" a candidate we all knew would get in. Mosby is a snake, he plays the Race Card. He goes around making promises to females that he can get them hired with his clout at the college. Than goes around and knock up employees at the college. He is a Cheater, a Liar, and refuse to take up his responsibility. Goes around getting on all of these boards to make himself look good. He cares nothing about the taxpayers. Face up to your wreckless conduct and your responsibility.
