Ron Lawless to run for Cook County Board?

Is Ron Lawless running for the Cook County Board? There's a Facebook group, a website and a fundraising page on Act Blue.

At a party yesterday that include Green Party members, members of NWCPJ and maybe some people from OPCTJ, at least one person expects Lawless to run as a Green Party candidate.

Since the Act Blue site mentions outreach to the West Side, I assume this means Lawless is considering a run for the seat now held by Earlean Collins. Ade Onayemi has already announced his intent to run in the Democratic primary.

Lawless ran in 1998 in the 4th Senate District (Dem primary) when Collins vacated that position unexpectedly. Kimberly Lightford, who was then a Maywood trustee, won the multi-candidate race.
