Statement from Mayor Emanuel on Madigan V. Burge Illinois Supreme Court Decision

Mayor's Press Office    312.744.3334

“We supported the Attorney General’s position on Burge’s pension and are disappointed by today’s decision. We have been fighting to provide retirement security for those who have served our community with integrity, and to see taxpayer dollars flow to a felon whose perjury conviction was directly related to the abuse of his city police position is offensive to every Chicago resident and the men and women who honorably earned their pensions.”
