In front of thousands of supporters, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel was sworn into his second term Monday morning at the Chicago Theatre, where guests included former U.S. President Bill Clinton, former Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley, Senator Dick Durbin, and Congressman Luis Gutierrez. Mayor Emanuel thanks his family and the city before addressing the need to invest in Chicago youth and eliminate the cycle of poverty and violence. “Over the next four years, I will do everything in my power to spark hope in the eyes of every Chicagoan,” he said. “We will work harder than ever to restore trust where it is broken and opportunity where it is lost.” Emanuel went on to challenge Chicagoans to serve as role models for at risk youth. “It’s time we stopped talking past each other and joined together and start finding solutions,” he said. “When young men and women join gangs in search of self-worth, we as a city must and can do better.”
