Re: “Bread & Circuses

I'm deeply grateful to all those that have posted comments. I hope this debate continues with our mayoral candidates. LSK is just one example of how a business can be put out of business before it has a chance to make a run. We are years behind what we had hoped to accomplish. I envision this model, once perfected, as a way to spur revitalization in other neighborhoods. Without government subsidies, without long-term grants. I'm going to keep fighting to get there.

A few more facts: we went to DBA in advance of filing any license applications. We laid out our business plan and asked CITY to define our business and tell us which licenses to apply for and how to describe it. We followed their direction only to be told later we did it wrong.

This 25th Ward case will be helpful information for us, thanks very much. Rolando Acosta worked on our case for the first six months of 2010, to no avail. Different zoning, Alderman and communities make every decision unique.
