Maybe I'll Stay In Town
- Two days before his contract was set to expire, Chicago police Superintendent Jody Weis remained noncommittal today about his future as the city's top cop.
He said he has not spoken with Mayor-elect Rahm Emanuel, who pledged during the campaign to replace Weis.
"We'll see what happens," Weis said during a news conference at police headquarters that announced the selection of a city officer to serve as part of a federal intelligence-gathering effort along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Weis said he would like to remain in Chicago after his three-year, $310,000-a-year position as police superintendent ends. His contract is set to expire Tuesday.
If we had scammed nearly a million dollars from Chicago taxpayers, we certainly wouldn't want to stick around. In fact, we can think of 49 other states we'd rather spend our ill-gotten gains than in Quinn's and Daley's workers' paradise. It's not like he ever made a connection with anyone here. And as far as we can tell, the ones greasing the skids for him to move out the door are the people he surrounded himself since the beginning.
