Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle delivered a blistering critique Thursday of City Hall’s performance on the two most troublesome issues facing Mayor Rahm Emanuel, bemoaning the city’s “miserable education system” and saying the mayor and his top cop’s solution to crime and violence is to “just arrest everybody.”There's more:
“Clearly this mayor and this police chief [Supt. Garry McCarthy] have decided the way in which they’re going to deal with the terrible violence that faces our community is just arrest everybody,” Preckwinkle said during an appearance at a Union League Club of Chicago luncheon where she reflected on her first two years in office. “I don’t think in the long term that’s going to be successful. I think we’re going to have to figure out how to have interventions that are more comprehensive than just police interventions in the communities where we have the highest rates of crime.”Is Preckwinkle getting ready to run against Rahm? Only time will tell for this former teacher and Chicago Alderman. Plus Preckwinkle has the Democratic Socialists of America connection that Chicago voters don't mind.
