With all the hoopla surrounding “chummy Rahm’s” residency status possibly affecting his ability to run for mayor because he was not technically a resident of Chicago has in my opinion only boosted his public profile among Chicagoans. We all knew he was going to be able to run…. I placed my bets….no more bets please…
Now with President Clinton endorsing his bid for mayor, Rahm’s campaign has now achieved a new level of player status. Chicago needs someone to get into office and kick some ass, do some real work. Out with the old and in with the new. As a cook county resident for many years now all i have seen nothing progressive.
Only thing that has progressed is the sniper like precision of parking tickets/meter maids, higher sales taxes
and more and more pot holes. The city is completely broke, there is over a 2300 police officer deficit because the city cannot afford to pay them, the south side is literally a war zone and half the high rise buildings in the south loop built on the hopes of Chicago hosting the Olympics sit half built and half occupied. Perhaps with the next new mayor of Chicago and his staff will turn the ship around and get residents to move back into cook county who have moved out into the burbs.
(shout out to my buddy Micky from Evanston for giving me the nickname “chummy Rahm”)
