“The problem for the mayor is that this isn’t going away. Every shooting, every unpopular decision, it’s all going to be very problematic for him.” -- N.Y. Times: Rahm Emanuel, Under Siege in Chicago, Shows Contrite Side

CTU's Stephanie Gadlin
 "We are very strong in our call for a Democratically elected school board. We would want the same for police oversight, not somebody that the mayor picks or someone who the mayor picks who picks someone." -- Politico
