Eight Forty-Eight

Chicagoans share their hopes for Mayor Emanuel

Rahm Emanuel begins his first full day as the 46th mayor of Chicago on Tuesday. But along with the perks of the 5th floor office, Emanuel inherits big problems and huge expectations.

Thousands of people showed up to see him take oath at Millennium Park on Monday. They later followed him to an open house at City Hall.

Eight Forty-Eight heard from a handful of them about what they wanted to see from their new mayor.
