- Mayor Rahm promises he’ll listen, but come on.
Now that Mayor Rahm’s got what he wants from the General Assembly, let’s see if he does what he says.
I’m talking about the state legislators having voted this week to give the mayor a four-month extension, until March 31, to make up his mind as to which schools he’ll be closing next year.
As if he hadn’t made up his mind months ago.
For the record, the mayor swears up and down that he’s undecided about which schools to close. And he promises he’ll really listen hard to what’s said by the little people who either go to the schools or send their kids to the schools he might close.
But you know how it goes with mayoral promises . . .
