CBA executive director Emanuel inauguration co-chair...

Greg Hinz, the political columnist at Crain's talking about who is going to be Chairmen of the Mayor-elect's inaugural festivities. It will include such luminaries as Desiree Rogers who is the former White House social secretary as well as Groupon Chairman Eric Lefkofsky, as well as one person from the Chatham Business Association:
Other co-chairs include Chatham Business Assn. Executive Director Melinda Kelly, Valor Equity Partners L.P. CEO Antonio Gracias, Harris Associates Chief Investment Officer David Herro, Teamsters Joint Council 25 President John Coli and private investor Tim Mullen, the former chairman of First Options of Chicago Inc.

   Given the financial heavyweights on the panel, it looks like some major cash will be needed to be raised, but no numbers are available.

  The mayor-elect's spokesman could not immediately answer how much or whether any limits would be imposed on who can give. But the statement said events "will be open and accessible to all Chicagoans."
