Daley Receives Mediocre Grades
No, not his law school results:
- Mayor Richard Daley's administration merits average to failing grades for its record on economic development, housing, transportation, education, criminal justice and ethics, according to a new study from a coalition of interest groups and local activists.
The report card is the result of a year-old project called "Developing Government Accountability to the People," and is scheduled to be released Monday, just weeks before voters decide whether to give Daley another four-year term in the Feb.27 election.
Combined with the latest union non endorsements, is Daley on the way out? Hell, no. But one wonders where all this bad publicity was the past few years when everything was headed south and all the media could do was wink and nod at business as usual.
