    Default issues affecting these departments

    I hear chicago may start the process again next year due to over $20 million in overtime. Rumors... i do not like the idea of the lottery system. but i am just curious if anybody has any ideas of other problem with chicago politics....etc
    I will be trying to get on chicago, denver, or colorado springs if anyone has worked there what affects those particular firefighters?

    I can see the lottery system opening to the door for potential problems. Who's to say someone didn't just stick someones name in the list of new hires because they are connected in some way. Could open the door for a lot shady things.
