Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review: 11/18

This week on Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review: Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s first budget is approved unanimously, with aldermen praising the mayor for his willingness to listen to their concerns and incorporate some of their suggestions. Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis comes under fire again, this time for making what she called “inappropriate and insensitive” remarks about Education Secretary Arne Duncan. Governor Pat Quinn retools the Illinois Tollway Board, naming five new directors. And a historic week for Chicago-based Boeing, as the company lands an $18 million and a $21 million deal.
