Mayor Rahm Emanuel reveals 2014 budget

Mayor Rahm Emanuel pulled up the curtain Wednesday on his 2014 budget. The speech was long on things his administration has achieved over the last couple of years, and finger pointing at Springfield for inaction over the pension situation. What it was short on was specifics. We didn’t hear a lot about where the $7 billion it takes to run the city will go. Nor did we hear that much about the initiatives to bring down the city’s $300 million plus deficit. The eight aldermen that make up the Progressive Caucus released a statement about the budget, and caucus member Rick Munoz, Alderman of the 22nd ward tells us more. Photo: Flickr/danxoneil
