CHICAGO (CBS) — Members of a City Council reform coalition were banding together to pressure Mayor Rahm Emanuel to reappoint Inspector General Joseph Ferguson to his job, despite his sometimes critical reports on the Emanuel administration.
WBBM Newsradio Political Editor Craig Dellimore reports the mayor has said Ferguson must reapply for the city inspector general’s position, and might not keep it.
Ald. Robert Fioretti (2nd) joined other members of the Progressive Reform Caucus in saying the mayor’s decision should be an easy one.
“We, and the citizens we represent, deserve to have Inspector General Ferguson reappointed,” he said.
