Less than a week after making a $634 M payment to the teachers' pension fund and then asking for $500 M back, Rahm has pledged $100 G of city money to burn down a house. The house-burning is planned for September 26th to celebrate the 2nd Annual Great Chicago Fire Festival.
The 1st Great Chicago Fire Festival in 2014, to which Rahm gave $350 G, is now known as the "fiasco on the river," as rainy weather prevented the fire from spreading and many tourists were disappointed.
CPS teachers, keep up the begging on Donors Choose. It looks like you're going to have wait for those dry erase markers, pencils and chairs that you need in the classroom.
