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.
Several members of the Chicago City Council said Tuesday they’ll be speaking out and pushing hard to reform City Hall, which could put them at odds with Mayor Rahm Emanuel and some of their colleagues.
