Rodriguez and former CTA top advisor get key jobs under Mayor Emanuel

Ex-CTA President Richard Rodriguez has landed solidly on his feet as Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s environment commissioner.

And Theresa Mintle, the chief of staff to CTA Board Chair Terry Peterson, was tapped by Rahm to be his own chief of staff.

So the good news is there are now at least three close Rahm advisors and top managers (including Forrest Claypool), who have ties to the CTA. Hopefully, those ties will keep the CTA top of mind for the new mayor.
