N’DIGO Endorses Rahm Emanuel for Mayor
(Huffington Post) — Chicago is at a major crossroads in its development. The city faces massive budget deficits and has been privatized to the point of no return — the parking meters were simply a dreadful deal. Taxes are high and TIFs needs to be equally distributed and reconsidered in their allocation. The crime rate may be down overall, but not for kids in certain parts of town who keep getting shot for no cause. There are union problems, neighborhood re-development issues, and major questions as to what to do about the Chicago Public Schools and the City Colleges of Chicago. It will take innovation, extensive knowledge of the public and private sectors, proven management experience, political adroitness, and steely determination to solve the major issues facing Chicagoans as we move into an uncertain future. At this point in time, and among this particular set of candidates, Rahm Emanuel is the person who most embodies these qualifications, and therefore, I am endorsing Rahm Emanuel for Mayor of the City of Chicago. Of the six mayoral candidates, he has demonstrated a vision for the city that will continue to move us forward in a world class direction, and his leadership, business, and political acumen simply outshines the rest of the field by far.
