  1. Hmmm.

    I may have to purchase a ticket so I can ask Alderman Clay about her PPP loans.

    Then again I wouldn't bet on her showing up. She's largely been MIA since she got elected. Federal scrutiny will do that.

    Maybe I'll wear a "Where's Waldo" costume so she'll feel more comfortable.

    I was told her Chief of Staff and another staffer quit.

    Yeah, I'd get outta Dodge if I were in her office too.
