February 22nd, 10 p.m. Today was Chicago’s Mayoral Election and Rahm Emanuel has been declared Mayor-Elect with 89% of precincts reporting.
This was Chicago’s first Mayoral race in sixty years without an incumbent candidate- in addition for the 43 out of the last 56 years there has been a Daley in office.
Due to his vision and understanding of Chicago’s tech culture, Flyover Geeks endorsed Mr. Emanuel for Mayor (Flyover Geeks’ Chicago Mayoral Endorsement: It’s Rahm)
Chicago is moving firmly into the 21st century; now let’s see how our first new 21st Century Mayor leads.
