Emanuel Kid Leads Dartmouth Student Vigil

Is the youngest generation of Emanuels—the Jewish Kennedys, led by brothers Rahm, Zeke and Ari—ready to dip their toes in politics? Dartmouth students held a candlelight vigil Thursday night to show support for staff members whose jobs may be eliminated as the New Hampshire college goes through a round of budget cuts. One leader of the event, organized by a group called Students Stand with Staff, was Gabrielle Emanuel, daughter of Zeke Emanuel, a senior adviser for health policy to the director of the Office of Management and Budget. “The non-unionized staff has been particularly anxious about their lack of job security and their lack of input in this process,” Emanuel told the college crowd. “They’re particularly vulnerable because they have no legal representation with the union.” Sounds like the apple doesn’t fall very far from the tree.
