Fioretti to host pre Super Bowl party at the West Side Billy Goat's with NFL player supporters

Following the announcement that former Chicago Bears coach Mike Ditka was supporting Bob Fioretti's candidacy for mayor, the Fioretti campaign on January 22, 2015 announced a party with former NFL Football Players for Bob Fioretti. "Join former NFL players including Tim Tyrell, Reggie Smith, Brent Novoselsky, Mike Wilson, Al Harris, Shafer Suggs, Wendell Davis and Greg Bloedorn this Sunday, January 25th from 3:00pm - 5:00pm at the Billy Goat Tavern located at 1535 W Madison with Bob Fioretti, candidate for mayor," the announcement said. "Meet these great former NFL players and join Fioretti supporters as we kick-off the last month of the campaign!"

Bob Fioretti's ad for the Billy Goat "Get In The Superbowl Spirit" party.The party comes on the eve of the first mayoral debates, which will provide much of the voting public with the opportunity to examine the abilities of the major candidates to articulate their positions. For Bob Fioretti, he has only to cite the past four or five years of his public work. No other candidate has publicly testified, agitated, and worked on the issues. As Substance will be reporting in the weeks ahead, no one has spoken more often, or more forcefully, against the expansion of charter schools, against the school closings, and against the other attacks on public education orchestrated by the administration of Mayor Rahm Emanuel. And finally, during the crucial weeks when decisions about other candidates were being made at the end of October and the beginning of November, the polls showed that Bob Fioretti was the most viable opponent to Rahm Emanuel -- despite the misrepresentations (or worse) that were claimed by some at that time.
