Know How To Analyze Budgets? The City Council Wants You

Polish off the old resume!

Ald. Pawar tweeted:

"Want to prevent a repeat of parking meter deal? On 5/1 apply to run new independent budget office. Email resumes to:"

Progress Illinois writes, "Chicago aldermen approved a long-proposed plan to set up an independent budget office tasked with analyzing financial matters under consideration by the city council.

Chicago is the fourth major U.S. city to adopt such an office, which was originally spearheaded in the council by Ald. Ameya Pawar (47th) and co-sponsors Alds. Michele Smith (43rd) and Pat Dowell (3rd).  The office, which will employ six staffers, is set to receive $485,000 in funding a year."  More here.

Good luck to all financial wizards who apply!


  1. If Helen gets that job I am moving to Canada.

    I'd give even odds that Shiller gets the job. Ameya Pawar is a decent guy, but he's been outmaneuvered by the forces of darkness on the council and by your buddy Darth Rahmulus.

    I suggest you start listening to this and learn the meaning of the word poutine. It's a Canadian dish that destroys the beauty of the French Fry.


    Do you want me to reserve a U Haul for you?
