Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Monday he’s not dissing a federal hiring monitor who has caught Rahm Emanuel protecting law breaking city administrators. He simply disagrees with her.
Emanuel fired back one day after the Chicago Sun-Times reported that Noelle Brennan was blasting his administration for its “combative” response to her suggestions that the rookie mayor discipline city officials for their roles in the city hiring scandal.
“I take seriously the work of the monitor. I take seriously also making sure we have a modern practice of hiring people and professionally done,” the mayor said.
“I take the work seriously enough that I asked us to review the recommendations. And I will continue to work with them on changes, but we came to a different set of conclusions.”
Brennan could not be reached for comment. She has been paid $5.8 million over the last seven years to ride herd over city hiring, $587,000 of it since Emanuel took office.
