Hedge-fund manager Ken Griffin took a swing at Mayor Emanuel Monday night during a speech at the Economic Club of Chicago, calling his record so far "lackluster."

Griffin, a billionaire and CEO of Citadel LLC, scolded Emanuel for the way he settled the Chicago teacher's strike and said the mayor should close even more schools than the 54 proposed, Crain's reports.

Griffin also criticized Gov. Pat Quinn for offering financial incentives for companies to stay in Illinois. Griffin is on the exploratory committee of wealthy Chicago businessman Bruce Rauner as he considers a run for governor.
