Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s City Council floor leader said Thursday he will decide in about a week whether to retire from politics and predicted whoever is elected mayor will have their hands full with at least 15 new aldermen.

“I don’t know that I’d retire from the working world, but maybe from the fishbowl world,” Ald. Pat O’Connor (40th), a 35-year Council veteran, said on The Fran Spielman Show.
