To the Editor:
Money won the mayoral election — big money, $26 million of big money. Schools, community health care, public safety, ordinary neighborhoods, ordinary jobs, ordinary people — they all lost. The neo-liberal, Republicrat political machine now owns Chicago, and the special people are very happy. Where was Toni when we needed her to stand up for progressive government? Busy building her own political machine by passing campaign money around to favorites like her protege Will Burns.
But credit where credit is due. Leslie Hairston stood up. She bravely endorsed Jesus “Chuy” Garcia for mayor knowing Rhambo will try to punish her for it. Thank you, Leslie Hairston.
