The results are in and Rahm Emanuel has won his second term as mayor of Chicago. This was the first mayoral runoff to ever happen in the history of Chicago politics. The campaigning from Jesus “Chuy” Garcia and Rahm Emanuel was fierce and contentious.
Mayor Emanuel pulled out the big guns in order to create the clear separation between himself and Garcia.
Most recently, Mayor Emanuel made the announcement in President Obama’s neighborhood of Hyde Park that the city of Chicago and Sprint have joined forces to build more than 115 new stores by the year’s end that will create over 300 jobs. Sprint also announced that they would invest tens of millions of dollars to make Sprint’s network the best in the city of Chicago. Sprint also contributed $250,000 to the “Connect Chicago Challenge,” which is an initiative to make Chicago the most dynamic digital city in the country.
Mayor Emanuel has a lot on his plate this time around from education, to the city’s budget and addressing racial disparities.
