I Like Ed Vrdolyak

Ben Joravsky's October 30 article on LeRoy Martin's race for Cook County sheriff gave the impression that I wish to distance myself from Ed Vrdolyak, as Joe Novak and Mike Sheahan have done to avoid their association with Harold Washington's political opposition. Council Wars was before my time as a political consultant in Illinois, but in the four years I have known Ed Vrdolyak, I have found him to be nothing but a forthright, loyal, and generous friend. I like Ed Vrdolyak, I like working with Ed Vrdolyak, and I hope I will continue to associate with Ed Vrdolyak for a long time to come.
