Emanuel calls for review of city's response to storm

In his first campaign appearance since the Blizzard of 2011, mayoral candidate Rahm Emanuel refused to second guess Daley administration officials' management of Lake Shore Drive during the storm.

During a tour of the Cornerstone Community Shelter on the North Side Thursday, Emanuel said the city should conduct "an action review--to determine what thing it did well and poorly in response to the crisis."

On Tuesday night, hundreds of motorists and their cars were abandoned on the city's principal north/south highway along the Lakefront.

In a statement Wednesday, Emanuel wrote that "mistakes were made". On Thursday, he appeared to temper that criticism as he called for a review of all the decisions made before traffic stopped on LSD.
