How come none of the good aldermen are ever written about and recognized in the news?
Ald. Marge Laurino in the 39th Ward has had a reputation like this for a long time.

Bank officials are already reappraising many of these homes and condos that were valued way over their actual worth by shady mortgage lenders, developers and their appraisers.
Wait until they figure out how much damage these crooks caused to the American financial system.
Oh wait, they already did!!

State Rep. John fritchey is a case study in the way the Chicago Machine works, yes the same machine Patrick Fitzgerald talks about all the time. Read the Tribune Neighborhoods for Sale investigation series and learn about State rep. john Fritchey. State Representative John fritchey is a zoning change lawyer. State Representative John fritchey is the nephew-in-law of City Council Zoning Chairman Bill Banks. John fritchey recently deposited $200,000 in Belmont Bank & Trust, telling the press they had the highest rate. Find out who is on the board of directors.
State Representative John fritchey does not want you to know he is a corrupt zoning change lawyer and political operative. Google Fritchey, Castle and learn how Fritchey-Banks forced a zoning change that bulldozed a Chicago neighborhood.
And remember, State Representative John Fritchey tried to force a Lincoln Park zoning change last fall without community input, as cited in the Chicago Reader on 12/13/07. He bypassed this step, filing directly with the city a request to change the zoning of a lot on the 1400 block of West Lill. When Alderman Scott Waguespack found out, he had to call Banks, State Representative John Fritcheys uncle-in-law, to ask him to hold the request until it could be brought before a neighborhood group. Fritchey dismisses the matter as an oversight.
