Bill Clinton in Chicago for jobs announcement with Rahm

| No Comments

Mayor Rahm Emanuel will be joined by former President Bill Clinton on Thursday afternoon for an announcement about jobs and economic creation at the big Carpenters Hall training facility.

Clinton played a major role in Emanuel's career. Emanuel moved to Little Rock, Arkansas to fund-raise for Clinton's 1992 presidential campaign and moved to the White House after he was elected. Emanuel has his ups and downs in the Clinton White House, but ended on the up. Emanuel left the Clinton White House in a position to quickly make millions of dollars as a deal maker in Chicago, run for the House, vault to leadership, step down to be President Barack Obama's chief of staff and last year, be elected Chicago mayor.

City Hall said Clinton and Emanuel "will make a major announcement about infrastructure, economic development and job creation in Chicago at the Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters Apprentice & Training Facility, 2141 S. Union Ave.

Emanuel holds a media availability following this event.

On Friday, Emanuel is in Washington for a panel discussion on education with New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Education Secretary Arne Duncan.
