In case you haven’t heard yet: Brandon Johnson has narrowly won the mayoral runoff in Chicago. Recall that Johnson’s occupation is an organizer for the teacher unions. The unions spent several million dollars on the race. They got their man.
The Windy City’s municipal government will now officially be a fully owned subsidiary of the Chicago Teachers Union. (Can you imagine what the union contracts are going to look like?) This is a city where zero children can read or write at proficiency level in roughly two dozen schools.
Sadly, Chicago was once known as “the city that works.” Now it looks more and more that because of the rise of the progressive left, blue cities are just not savable. We hope we are wrong.
