The Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce congratulates Rahm Emanuel on his re-election as mayor. The Chamber endorsed Mayor Emanuel because of his steadfast stewardship of the city during his four years in office and his ability to solve Chicago’s financial crises, maintain economic growth and continue to improve our education system.

“The budgetary pressures continue to limit funding for other important areas of our city, including education, public transportation, and public safety. Solving these issues will require collaborative efforts by all stakeholders. The choices ahead are not going to be easy, but if we make the tough choices now, businesses will grow and jobs will be created for all who live and work in Chicagoland,” said Mike Reever, vice president of government affairs for the Chamber.

The Chamber also congratulates all those elected to serve as aldermen on Chicago’s City Council. We look forward to continuing to work with Mayor Emanuel and the City Council on the issues facing our city.
