Rahm Emanuel's second Chicago mayoral ad: "Tenacity"

| No Comments

Chicago mayorail hopeful Rahm Emanuel starts televising his second ad on Monday, titled "Tenacity."

Transcript:

John Dudlak: It was difficult to continue manufacturing in the facility we were at and we were approached by WISPARK, which is south of Kenosha, Wisconsin.

Boguslaw Duczek: It was terrible. I talked to my wife. I talked to kids. I say, oh, boy. Oh, boy. If they move, what are we going to do?

Dudlak: I get a call from Rahm and he is just irate. He says, 'I can't believe that this is going on. How in the world could a 100 year old Chicago company move to WISPARK? You know'

And he said, "I'm going to look into this thing. It's just not right."

What he did was he made the city and the state and the developer see the logic of keeping employees in Chicago.

Delfin Perez: It surprise me you know because we're not talking about 200 and 500 people, just about 30, 30 something people.

And he did a great job, so that we'd be able to stay in Chicago.

Dudlak: It's just that he wants to do what's right...

And he will just latch on to it and he'll pursue it and pursue it and get it done. I wish more people had that kind of tenacity.
