Cordell, Do you think any of his policies are working? If so, which ones?

I believe if you check, you will find that Property Developers are required by City Code to put in sidewalks at their expense unless they get a waiver from that part of the code. Once the sidewalks are in, they become the city's responsibility to maintain.

Does anyone else remember that much (most?) of the land the Kroc Center now occupies was formerly Salvation Army property and thus exempt from taxation all along? That would seem to mitigate some of the tax issues some on here are so jacked up about. If I am in error, I welcome correction and/or dissenting opinions.

Well, you're too sharp for me. I was just trying to relieve that longing. I know how much that can hurt.

Well that guy asked for a gift of money to build his building. So yeah, many objected. The city proposed making it a loan and he backed out. To the best of my knowledge the Kroc center never asked for a thing. It's the city that put proposed putting in the sidewalks since they own that part of the property...just like they own the sidewalks in all the city right of way. Now...since sidewalks…

REBEL MEDIA: Obama to shake the money tree for Our Man Dick

1 year ago by Bob Gough

President Barack Obama returns to Chicago this week  to participate in two events for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

Obama will spend the night in Chicago and depart Friday, according to the White House.

The trip is a push for the re-election of Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, the Senate assistant majority leader.

The Chicago Tribune reports the schedule calls for Obama to attend a fundraising reception Thursday at the home of Michael and Tanya Polsky and a dinner at the home of Fred Eychaner, according to an invitation to the events.

Eychaner, the founder of the Newsweb Corp., is a top fundraiser for Obama and other Democrats.

Michael Polsky is president and CEO of Invenergy LLC, based in Chicago. The firm develops, owns and operates power generation facilities in North America and Europe, its Web site says.

Durbin and Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., who chairs the DSCC, sent out the invites, which ask for $1,000 of reception guests, $10,000 of reception sponsors, and $15,000 of reception co-chairs. Dinner costs $17,500 per person, or $35,000 per couple. Better be steak and lobster...and good beer.

Sorry, Quincy. There's not enough money down here to make Dick come see us with much regularity these days.
