“The First 100: Mayor Emanuel’s Early Impact on Chicago” is a culminating event, produced in collaboration with the Chicago History Museum, capping off the Eight Forty-Eight series The First 100 which has explored policy under Mayor Emanuel during the first 100 days of his administation. When Rahm Emanuel took the oath of office on May 16, 2011, he wasted little time outlining an ambitious new agenda for the nation’s third largest city - and set a 100 day benchmark for many new policy and programmatic initiatives. WBEZ is covering the Emanuel administration’s first 100 days through a series of stories, reports, interviews and conversations. They chronicle the early days of the first new mayoral administration in 22 years - and assess the progress toward key goals.
