Paul Vallas brings experience, political liabilities to possible Emanuel challenge

Bill Ruthhart, John Byrne and Patrick M. O’Connell:

Paul Vallas has spent the better part of the last two weeks fueling speculation that he might launch a bid to challenge Mayor Rahm Emanuel in the February 2019 city election.

The former Chicago Public Schools CEO, 2002 Democratic governor candidate and 2014 lieutenant governor candidate certainly possesses political experience. He’s also built a career as an education expert who has revamped various school districts and retains a detailed knowledge of City Hall finances from a turn as budget director.
