#3 Karen Lewis recently retired due to 'health' reasons, 3dc.

Jesse Sharkey, an avowed socialist (a prominent member of the International Socialist Organization - ISO), is the new CTU head (with an associated salary north of $200K)

Although he is repeatedly bailed out of his financial/legal issues by his multi-millionaire father-in-law.

#6 He doesn’t want to risk becoming "mayor bankruptcy."

#7 Rah, Emanuel did try. He got massive, immediate pushback - and knowing the power structures in the city, gave up.
