“While we applaud Mayor Emanuel’s contributions to the city, Chicago’s unmet needs and unfinished business must be addressed,” Rev. Jackson said. “The unfinished business of too much violence, of the impact of 50 closed public schools, shuttered mental health clinics and the lack of manufacturing jobs that have left behind devastating zones of poverty and despair. Those who seek to replace the mayor must put forward an urban agenda to close the resource distribution/ opportunity gap and make Chicago one city for all.”
