It has now been 110 days since we at the Reader have requested an interview with Mayor Richard M. Daley. We’re still waiting to hear when—or if—it’s going to happen.

Over the last several months, other news organizations—including the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Sun-Times, and Chicago Public Radio—have asked the mayor for comment about our reporting on the parking meter lease deal, the budget, the city’s Olympic bid, and the mayor’s tax increment financing program during press conferences and in-person interviews. We’d love the chance to ask the mayor about those things ourselves.
