"A candidate in the 46th Ward aldermanic runoff has filed a revised statement of economic interest with the Chicago Board of Ethics after Crain's asked why she apparently failed to disclose nearly $42,000 in federal Payroll Protection Program loans to a hair-products firm she owned.

In a letter yesterday to Ethics Board Chairman Steve Berlin, candidate Angela Clay said she inadvertently disclosed financials on one newly formed company that she said paid her $9,000 as president, Saij, when she should have listed another that was formed earlier in 2014, Pink Ribbon Hair...

Clay's campaign website makes no mention of the companies she ran or what income she derived from them, terming her a "community leader" who was the youngest president ever of nonprofit Voice of the People in Uptown."

  1. Interesting. Very interesting.

    Could be nothing. Could be something. We just dunno. Or at least I dunno.

    Interestingly, for those of us with long memories there are other ties between Shiller and hair care related entities.


    Angela Clay has been groomed since she was a teen to become a "leader" in Uptown. Groomed by Shiller, Kaplan, and her teachers at Uplift High school. Notice the pun? I apologize.

    20 days till the election and early voting starts next week. Vote early and the canvassers for Angela will stop buzzing you on the weekends. I'll give the teacher's union one thing. They're organized at least in this ward and they know how to wake my butt up at 2pm on a Saturday.
