UPI News Service, 04/06/2013 

An Illinois woman says she and her adult son haven't said much to each other since they both began running for the presidency of their small community.

Wendy and Randall Casey live in the same house in Dixmoor but seem to be avoiding one another as they drum up votes in the upcoming village president election, Wendy Casey told WMAQ-TV, Chicago.

"We just interact, saying, 'Good morning,' and, 'Good evening,' when he comes in from work," she said.

She said Dixmoor, a low-income town south of Chicago, has been on the skids for years, and has gotten to a point that a fire engine was recently repossessed.

The village board has been a revolving door of resignations. The incumbent president was removed from the ballot because he had no fixed address and was living in his office.

Both Caseys told WMAQ they were serious about winning the election and did not want their living arrangement to be a distraction.

"I don't want to embarrass the people of Dixmoor," Randall said. "The people of Dixmoor have had enough embarrassment."
