Jason Honig suspended his campaign to challenge 40th Ward Alderman Pat O’Connor this morning, announcing on his Facebook page.
I am sad to write that we are suspending the campaign until further notice. I am currently struggling with many personal issues including my health.
You and the ward deserve a servant leader who can contribute all of my being to this campaign. Right now, i am unable to do that. I need to take this time to heal mentally and physically. I need time to just “be”
This campaign is not about me as an individual but rather a message of empowerment and true servant leadership. Continue to hold your elected officials accountable and build partnerships in our communities to change the landscape of politics.
Thank you for your support, prayers, and engagement. I hope we have a chance to work together soon.
Honig’s exit leaves Ald. Pat O’Connor without a known challenger in the 2011 municipal election.
