Two candidates running for mayor in South suburban Dixmoor are related.

Wendy and Randall Casey are mother and son. They're two of the four candidates on the April ballot. They say political talk is strictly avoided in their home.

Randall refuses to label his mother as a rival, and tells the Chicago Tribune he's running for the people, not against any one candidate.

Wendy jokingly said that she wishes she could evict her son.

Randall's father is former Dixmoor mayor Donald Luster. He was forced out of office in 2004 after being convicted of unemployment benefits fraud.
