Will Rahm Emanuel take away the old timer’s pensions?

Ronald Bober and old timer.jpg John Faleni is a 92 year old guy that worked for the City of Chicago as a Laborer. Most of his years were spent in the Central District on the Hydrant Truck. John really loved the newer trucks the department bought a few years ago. John remembered my father a plumber and then a Plumbing Inspector. John was so excited to see the current employees and had many fond memories about the 34 years he worked for Chicago taxpayers. John really got a kick out of the Hired Truck Scandal. John retired in 1983. I was happy for John and stopped losing count of all the times he shook my hand. John is pictured with Ronald Bober another 1092 Union Brother. John was concerned about the Chicago pension crisis. Photo by Patrick McDonough
