CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- Mayor Emanuel has already put together a Chicago wish list for when Democrat J.B. Pritzker takes the reins of state government from Gov. Bruce Rauner.

For Pritzker’s first four months in office, Emanuel will still be mayor.

Among the items Emanuel says he’d like to see Pritzker act on right away is early childhood education. He’d like to see more state aid for that.

Emanuel said a major transportation bill is long overdue.

Thirdly, Emanuel said he’d like to see more money for higher education in Illinois.

Emanuel did not have a good political relationship with Republican Rauner, even though the two previously had been friends.
