Re: “Mayor Emanuel tallies his City Council yes votes

I have seen several complaints from residents on EveryBlock about Rahm raising money by putting advertisements on city landmarks. Chicago is a beautiful city but it won't be once our landmarks are loaded with advertisements. There has got to be a way to pressure our aldermen against this action.

Besides, I hate Bank of America.

Re: “Mayor Emanuel tallies his City Council yes votes

I haven't heard very many complaints from people about the closures of six of the 12 mental health centers. This is cruelty to the one of the most defenseless segments of our society.

Supposedly Rahm will save $3 million by closing the clinics. But $7 million in TIFs were given to a grocery store in Greektown and Cappleman is considering a $31 million TIF for a developer who seems to stay in bankruptcy. If we have this much money to throw at rich realtors, why can't we fund mental health clinics?
