Interview with Clory Bryan
QUESTION 13
JUDY RICHARDSON:

If you could preface it by saying you were running as an independent against the Daley machine.

CLORY BRYANT:

I was running as an independent ah in the early sixties. I was running as an independent against the Daley machine. Ah I had asked a neighbor of mine was she going to vote for me. As a matter of fact I says, I know you'll vote for me. And she said, "No, I'm afraid I can't because ah--ah my alderman always gives me a Christmas tree for my vote. And--and ah I know you can't afford to go around buying these many trees. So I'm just going to vote for him because I have to have my tree." And so I didn't get her vote.
