This morning brought the news that Chicago’s bond ratings have been downgraded again, primarily because of the pension crisis. The only city in the country with a lower rating is Detroit.
Mayor 1% and his City Council allies (the infamous rubber-stampers) have failed us again. Unfortunately, too many of them have been re-elected, including our own clueless leader. They cling to pie-in-the-sky solutions rather than face the hard work of cutting budget fat and making the tough decisions that will keep the city out of bankruptcy.
I’m for Chuy. We need an experienced administrator who is willing and able to put the City of Chicago back on track.
He’s the guy without the $30 million war chest. He won’t be buying your support, he’ll be working for it.
