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.

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.

Wendell Mosby has been temporarily stripped of his travel reimbursement privileges after he walked out of a board meeting and took the quorum with him.

When a board policy on nepotism in employment came up for discussion and vote, Mosby voiced his disapproval, according to the minutes. He said the board was enacting the policy to retaliate against the Prairie State staff for opposing the hiring of Chair …
