Mayor Emanuel involved in drive-by shooting at Dixon School

Mayor Emanuel involved in drive-by shooting at Dixon School.

To elaborate & explain: On our Facebook page, we posteda photo from the Mayor's facebook page. Mayor Rahm Emanuel had stopped by Dixon Elementary School on Tuesday morning, for what was essentially a photo opp (i.e. photo shooting). (A search at came up with nothing ).

So the headline was a little misleading.
OK, a lot misleading.  But how much significant time has Mayor Emanuel really spent in our community? He has been here a few times, to eat at Izola's (which has since closed, but hopefully temporarily), shake hands at El stops, and this Dixon appearance.  But he has avoided most forums on the South Side when he was running for mayor, such as the Mayoral Forum at Carter Temple, where every other candidate appeared.

We will we see any significant attention from the Mayor in the next 4 years?

Random question: why were the Dixon students "out of uniform"? Was it intended to make the school seem "safer" than a school with uniforms? Or just a coincidence that it timed with the photo opportunity?

  1. They still have a dress code but they killed uniforms shortly after becoming a Track E school.
