NewsViews: Mayor Daley's Legacy
May 22, 2011 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- After being sworn in as Chicago mayor on Monday, Rahm Emanuel signed three new executive orders, and continued three of former Mayor Daley's orders, all dealing with ethics.
One new executive order prohibits Chicago employees from lobbying the city for two years after they leave office. Another blocks city employees from being pressured to make political gifts to the mayor or other city officials. The third prevents city lobbyists from making campaign contributions to the mayor.
The Daley ethics orders that Emanuel reissued ban political contributions to the mayor from the owners of firms doing business with the city; mandate that city employees comply with so-called Shakman clean-hiring rules; and compel city employees to report wrongdoing to Chicago's inspector general.
