Mayor Emanuel Fails to Lead on National Stage

Mayor Emanuel failed to use his appearances on four national morning shows today to lobby for new urban policies on crime and public education. As the well-known mayor of America's third largest city, he should have used his national platform to address the crises facing his own city and advance policy solutions for all urban centers in the country.

"If he was going to skip town in the midst of a violent crime wave and a looming teacher's strike, the least Mayor Emanuel could've done was bring national attention to the serious challenges facing Chicago and other great American cities," said Chicago GOP chairman Adam Robinson.
