Mayor Daley delivers annual City of Chicago address

Chicao MayorChallenges Chicagoans to Protect Children;

Announces more funding for summer jobs for youth and summer parks programs, and a new CPS program aimed at easing the transition to high school for 8th graders

Michigan Av. The city has come far since the days of “Council Wars,” when the city was divided along racial lines.
