An article in the Chicago Tribune HERE mentions several appointments by incoming Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, among them is the retention of Fire Commissioner Hoff.

The incoming mayor also announced the rest of his public safety team. Emanuel is keeping Robert Hoff as fire commissioner. The 33-year Fire Department veteran was appointed by Mayor Richard Daley nearly a year ago. He’s a two-time winner of the department’s top award for bravery and was the incident commander of the department’s deployment to New York City after the Sept. 11 attacks
