Emanuel mayoral inaugural committee--the MIC--holds first meeting

| No Comments

Mayor elect Rahm Emanuel's "Chicago 2011" mayoral inauguration committee--the MIC--held its first meeting on Wednesday over at the Chicago Cut Steakhouse, 300 N. LaSalle.

Chicago 2011 was created by Emanuel to bankroll a series of events marking his May inauguration as mayor. The committee will fund citywide events not only for Emanuel, but in a bid for unity--and command and control--Emanuel's MIC will also organize inauguration celebrations for the City Clerk and City Treasurer. The committee--Desiree Rogers is one of the members--is tasked with raising money and planning a variety of events spread over several days in May to mark the swearing in of the officials elected citywide: mayor, city treasurer and city clerk. Aldermen will, if they choose, be able to coordinate their swearing-in activities with the MIC.
