Hughes to run for Rockford mayor

Jim Hughes, Winnebago County Director of Development Services, has announced that he plans to run mayor of Rockford.

A former Rockford alderman and Winnebago County Board member, the self-described “Zeke Giorgi Democrat” filed as a candidate for State Senate in the 34th District last fall but withdrew when his petitions were challenged. He also has been a Rockford mayoral candidate before.

Hughes plans to announce his candidacy officially at 2 p.m. Tuesday at Memorial Hall, 211 N. Main St.
