Ald. Nicholas Sposato
Singing the civil rights anthem “Woke Up This Morning,” Congressman Bobby Rush called it “The Freedom Bus.”
Ald. Nicholas Sposato (36th), a firefighter on leave while he serves on the City Council, took some time Friday to offer his review of a new TV series, “Chicago Fire,” filmed in the city.
Members of the Chicago City Council’s self-described “progressive caucus” said the mayor’s office isn’t giving residents enough of a chance to discuss the city budget, so they’ll hold more budget hearings of their own.
A report out Friday morning indicates extra pay perks in the Chicago firefighters’ contract cost taxpayers more than $80 million last year.
