The consultants, who once worked for KPMG, have been on the outs since a Chicago-based consulting firm shut down its Chicago office in August.
They said they are staying put for now because of the uncertainty surrounding the federal budget, and their clients’ demands for their services.
The consultants say the federal government is “not going to be able to support” the businesses that rely on them, and they are concerned about the future of their work.
They also worry about losing their job security, and the uncertainty that could arise if the government does not provide a plan for the city’s recovery.
The consultants said they believe the Trump administration is not providing the necessary support to make the city a competitive place.
They say that the city has not been transparent enough about how much funding the government is providing, and that they are struggling to find out what will happen to their city.
They were scheduled to receive an additional $1.6 million in federal funding through September.
“We are not in a position to work in the city of Chicago,” said one of the consultants, Joseph Azzopardi.
As the Trump Administration struggles to find a path forward to keep the city open and business going, the consultants are also facing criticism from business leaders and others for being too quick to criticize the administration.
Azzopardis group, which is not a lobbying firm, is an independent consulting firm that provides a variety of services for clients, including planning, project management and tax planning.
In a statement, a spokesperson for the Department of Homeland Security said the administration “has a strong and ongoing commitment to supporting our cities, counties and states as they recover from natural disasters and recover from the effects of the pandemic.”
“This administration continues to focus on supporting the recovery efforts of the federal, state and local governments,” the statement continued.
According to a statement by the office of Mayor Rahm Emanuel, he was not aware of any requests from the consultants to move.
“The mayor has no knowledge of these requests,” the spokesperson said.
On Tuesday, Chicago Mayor Rahb Emmanuel, who has criticized the Trump White House, issued a statement calling for more cooperation from the Trump government to support businesses and help residents.
Emanuel also issued a call for all residents to report any new threats to their communities to police.
“While we cannot control every threat to our communities, we can and should act to support our communities,” Emanuel said.
