Zoning Changes For Sale
As previously posted on Uptown Update, many Uptown residents, including Uptown United, Uptown Chicago Commission and many block clubs, have expressed concern about the proposed Labor Ready location at 4830 North Sheridan. Residents report that Alderman Helen Shiller strongly supports this day labor office.
Could it be a coincidence that the owner of 4830-4 North Sheridan, Slater Realty and Investments, made a $250 campaign contribution to Citizens for Helen Shiller in November 2007? This contribution was made within weeks of the zoning change application.
Update: For those of you who would like to keep track of who donates to our Alderman, we added a handy link entitled "Campaign Contribution Database" off on the right. Towards the bottom of the search fields, enter a name such as "Shiller." You may have to narrow down the results by entering something in the "received date" field. It's hours of endless fun. Try it out! November 2007 was a VERY profitable month for our alderman.
