Veteran Democrat politician George Shadid has petition gatherers out working for him. Appears he is going to challenge Ardis for Peoria Mayor.

What the hey, she's female, black, young, speaks well, is aggressive and good-looking. What other characteristics are needed these days?
Mayor Jim Ardis has a fund raiser with food at Weaver Ridge Golf Club today, 5-8, casual business attire. Bring a friend.
I'll be there.
