Even though he's been COO of CPS for two and a half years now, I hadn't met Sean Murphy, the "new" Tim Martin, until last night at an LSC meeting for Wicker Park's Pritzker Elementary School.
Murphy was there -- in sweats and wearing a cell phone earpiece -- at the behest of Ald. Manny Flores, who is trying to help the school deal with various issues including an overheated building, asbestos abatement, and repeated break-ins. Being COO doesn't look like it's as much fun these days as it was 10 years ago when there was all that money to give out. More about Pritzker and capital improvement later.
