As Mayor Emanuel passes his first 100 days in office, Chicagoans weigh in on the city's future.

Monday began a series of reports aimed to assess the performance of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel as part of the First 100 series which explores the early days of the city’s new administration. Wednesday night, Eight Forty-Eight will hold a public forum with the mayor and other agency heads at the Chicago History Museum. The discussion will be an opportunity to discuss the future of Chicago. Listeners can hear that conversation on Friday's show. To get the conversation started, WBEZ's Pritzker Journalism Fellow LaCreisha Birts hit the streets to hear what some residents want for their city.
