Harry Osterman leaning strongly toward running

From Gay Chicago Magazine:
CHICAGO – Ill. state Rep. Harry Osterman (D-Chicago) said Aug. 16 that he is leaning strongly toward running for the 48th Ward City Council seat being vacated by retiring Ald. Mary Ann Smith, who’s held the seat since 1989.

“I’ve been talking to people about the issues facing the ward and getting a lot of feedback that’s been very positive,” Osterman said.

Osterman’s mother held the Edgewater-based seat before Smith and there’s been a great deal of speculation about an Osterman candidacy in the February 2011 city election since Smith announced her plans to retire at the end of her term.
