Tell Boys & Girls Club of Chicago: Ditch Rahm

By: Thursday September 13, 2012 1:00 pm

As Dave Dayen wrote, “The schools in the lowest-income areas have no air conditioning. Roofs leak. The cafeteria is full of roaches. Mold sits in the ventilation systems. Kids don’t get textbooks for weeks. Administrators pack classrooms with 40 and 50 students at a time.”

The city of Chicago did set aside money to make these repairs, but Mayor Rahm Emanual rerouted it to his cronies. And yet, somehow, Rahm is still the Honorary Chairman of the The Boys and Girls Club of Chicago, an organization with a mission “to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.”

Tell the Board of Directors to remove Rahm Emanual as Honorary Chair of the Boys and Girls Club of Chicago.

I keep saying over at my home base that I don’t, actually, have anything against you making money and going home and enjoying your in-ground pool or your Lexus or whatever. Just don’t come to me and bitch about tough things are for you and ask for another tax cut. That’s all I ask.
