Honig suspends campaign

Jason Honig suspended his campaign to challenge 40th Ward Alderman Pat O’Connor this morning, announcing on his Facebook page.

Friends,
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.
Jason

About Patrick Boylan

Patrick grew up near LaFollette Park on the West Side. He contends that the very best Italian beef sandwiches are made on the West Side and has a strange love of the flat pizza from that part of the city. Patrick led The Bulldog to win seven journalism awards in 2011, including four awards to Patrick as a solo or a team member. He is very proud of The Dog's coverage of politics and schools in the neighborhood. Patrick wrote for the Times of Northwest Indiana as a stringer covering Cook County Government, for the Chicago Tribune as a stringer on the Chicago Wolves and for ChicagoNow as a writer before starting The Dog. He wrote for four years for ChiTownDailyNews.org as a media commentator and spent about 20 years in operations at city newspapers, including nine years as owner of his own distribution company. Prior to that he spent about nine years in public relations. Patrick has a Masters degree from the University of Colorado. He attended Eastern Illinois University for undergrad and Weber High School and St. Peter Canisius grammar school. The two-flat he owns was built in 1912 and has never been featured, to his knowledge, in any major motion pictures despite having a way-cool garden. Patrick purchased the property in 1994 and "couldn't afford to buy it now." His daughter is a college student in California. He lives in the house with his wife, Jane, and two cats who often sit in on his phone interviews.
