There was an article about this casino deal in one of the Chicago papers recently.
It explained how Mayor Pannell entered into a secret agreement with a builder over a year ago.
The deal included that a portion of the the taxes raised from this casino(millions per year)will be allocated to the builder for 20 years.
If he was forthcoming then the bidding on this project would have been made public.
I'm all for this casino but we need politicians with some ethics in place first.
With Pannell in charge we might as well just let orginized crime run the show.
