Story by 89 WLS Reporter Bill Cameron
(CHICAGO) Mayor Emanuel says the Chicago Marathon will continue, undoubtedly with security enhancements, it’s just too early to know what they will be.
“The Chicago Marathon will go on and all the other big events,” Emanuel told 89 WLS reporter Bill Cameron. “You have to wait, Bill, the after-action report in the sense that if you make any alteration or changes. But the marathon will go on. It’s a great part of the City of Chicago. A great event as well as it brings in about $170 million of economic growth to the City of Chicago. And so it will continue.”
The mayor says he’s offered Boston any help it needs and while he says there’s no credible threat here, he’s asking you to say something to authorities if you see something that looks suspicious.
