Why don't you guys touch on the corruption and lies by Alderman Shiller on the Wilson Yard Project ? She's telling us one thing and doing another and no one seems to care!!!

Good point Mike, Shiller has done nothing substantial for this ward. She coddles the "high crime homeless" like those that live Hotel Chateau and Lakeview co-op tower. New development for retail and residential is sluggish at best and the plans lay on the planning table for years. I voted to get her out unfortunately not enough in this area did so we're stuck.

I'm not looking for high density residential and retail development,I just want to be able to walk down my street and not have to see a drug deal happening every few minutes. Shiller need to step up to the plate and have the slumlords of the Co-op and Chateau held accountable for the illegal activities that occur on their properties while they turn a blind eye, cause you know "a buck is a buck."

Shiller won the last election by the skin of her teeth, trust me nothing will change in this area while she is still got control. And I agree with you Mike. She ran as a non-machine anti corruption candidate, but I would wager to say is is probable one of the more corupt city officials.
