Alderman Rick Lawrence paid $300 to a charity auction so his daughter could be 'mayor or a day'. Alderman Lawrence is also running for mayor.
But Weisner replied, "It is sad to think that a candidate might use their children to play political games. This was meant to help a charity and educate a child. Nonetheless, Alderman Lawrence's daughter, herself, is welcome to participate."Well I have to admit it actually strikes me as kind of funny, the school he gave some money to got the money and the mayor could have looked good by playing along instead of seeming a bit petty.
Also OneMan once purchased a bunch of ticket for 'Have lunch with the Mayor' at his daughters school for comedic effect.
