Tonight local DeKalb Mayor candidate Carolyn Morris will be staging a signature campaign using a local Pub as the meeting place. Fatty’s Pub will be the location for this event. The sign-up times will be 4:30 PM to 5:30 PM.
Last weekend one of the other DeKalb Mayor candidates, Cohen Barnes had a similar drive-by sign-up at Fatty’s Pub. It is interesting that candidates are using a Pub to gather signatures. This use to be a concern with voters when candidates and liquor establishments would partner on election events.
It is important to note that the Mayor of DeKalb is the Liquor Commissioner.
For those DeKalb residences that have been around for a while, in the 1980s former DeKalb Mayor Greg Sparrow would purchase a barrel of beer and host a signature party at one of NIU Frat houses. He became know as Mayor Greg ‘The Keg’ Sparrow.
