Eight Forty-Eight

Chicago taxpayers are still paying for the Daley administration

Mayor Emanuel got a second helping of public opinion on the city budget Wednesday night. The mayor held two town halls this week; he asked constituents for ideas to close the city’s estimated $635 million deficit. Much of the red ink on the city’s balance sheet bled over from the
Daley administration. Recent reports show that taxpayers are still paying for Daley—literally. The Chicago Reader's Mick Dumke joined Eight Forty-Eight to assess the damage.
