Del Valle on "tough guy" Rahm
"This whole thing about being tough—it's about personalities and demeanor, it has nothing to do with running a city," del Valle says. "What, he's tough because he swears? I don't swear to people, so I'm not tough? I'm from Humboldt Park. He's from where—Wilmette, Winnetka? I went to Tuley High, he went to what—New Trier? And Rahm's tougher than me?"--Ben Joravsky, The Reader

  1. Hi,

    My name is Jerry Mead-Lucero. I am the host / producer of Labor Express Radio, a labor news and current affairs radio program in Chicago. I read your article in the Huffington Post about Rahm Emmanuel. I would like to interview you about the prospects for teachers and other workers in Chicago if Rahm is elected for the radio program. Do you have anytime next week to meet for any interview? I pretty flexible on the time and I will meet you wherever you like.
    Give me a call... (312) 502-7867

    In Solidarity,
    Jerry Mead-Lucero
