Rahm skipping White House reception for mayors

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, President Obama's former chief of staff, is skipping a reception for mayors hosted by Obama at the White House on Wednesday in connection with the U.S. Conference of Mayors Winter meeting here. During the day, Emanuel is presiding over a City Council meeting. Emanuel is speaking to the mayors group on Friday, but not attending much else of the conference. During the summer, Emanuel addressed the organization at a Baltimore meeting--he got a big reception--and also did not attend most of the working sessions.
