Mother, son running for Dixmoor mayor

March 8, 2013 8:54:24 PM PST
Two candidates for mayor of south suburban Dixmoor are living together during the campaign, because they're mother and son.

Wendy Casey is a community activist. Her son Randall is technician for a cable company. Both are vying for a new job as mayor.

Randall isn't talking much about this unusual situation. But his mother says they're both very strong minded.

"It's been very contentious," Wendy Casey said. "We don't speak about the election, we do not speak about politics and it's just hi and bye."

The Caseys face not only each other in the race for mayor. There are two other candidates on the ballot for next month's election.
