NSN.-Karen Lewis, the Chicago Teachers Union, CTU, president isn’t waiting for 2015 to try to oust Mayor Rahm Emanuel, whom she blames for closing a historic number of schools.

“If the mayor and his handpicked corporate school board will not listen to us, then we must find those who will”, said Lewis Monday announcing an aggressive campaign to train his possible replacement of Emanuel.

She would not name what candidates she had in mind, instead the CTU and other partners are launching a new effort to get 100,000 new voters registered in time for the 2015 municipal elections.

Asked if she would consider a run for mayor Lewis said “No. Thank you” and then she added, “Not yet”.
