The two met for about an hour Friday at Quinn’s office at the Thompson Center. They did not take questions and offered no specifics, but vowed to cooperate on their core issues: education, the economy and job creation.

“We had a real nice chat … we have lots of things were are going to do in the … years to come,” Quinn said.

Emanuel acknowledged there would only be a few weeks left in the legislative session when he takes over from Mayor Richard Daley in May.

“We don’t have a day to waste as it relates to the people we represent,” Emanuel said.
