Joravsky Toasts Local 2
- It seems like only yesterday that Mayor Rahm—backed by his mayoral body guards, of course—was marching into firehouses to tell the rank and file he was cutting their pensions. And, if they didn't like it, they could kiss his mayoral derriere.
Well, that was then—or 2012, to be exact—and this is now, where to my surprise, the firefighters' union has decided to endorse Mayor Pension Snatch for reelection.
To get the inside scoop, I called Thomas Ryan, president of Chicago Firefighters Union Local 2, to ask: Tommy, what the f . . . In so many words, of course.
And he shows how the parties are attempting to rewrite history...and getting away with it.
