(CHICAGO) At City Hall, the mayor issued a statement saying he called Boston Mayor Thomas Menino this afternoon to convey support from the people of Chicago. During this time of tragedy and uncertainty, the mayor said, the people of Boston are in our thoughts and prayers.
Emanuel said the running of the Boston Marathon and Patriots Day are time-honored traditions. While the details of today’s tragedy are still unclear, one thing was immediately known: The patriotism and professionalism of public servants and first responders. Our hearts go out the first responders, runners, volunteers and spectators in Boston today.
