- But by asking for $293 million, Daley and the aldercreatures can "compromise" at the $190 million mark and pass themselves off as heroes to the voters who are about to get hammered by the State and County governments by claiming to have "saved" everyone a cool hundred million.
Why does it take an amateur cop blog to do the media's job? We guess that the "public watchdog" is more the "mayor's lapdog" when it comes to actually doing right by the people.
- Mayor Daley will “substantially reduce” his proposed $108 million property tax increase, but rebellious aldermen will have to wait to find out how and by how much, City Hall sources said Wednesday.
The precise mix won’t be known until Daley signs off on the plan. But, one thing is certain: Aldermen who squawked like never before about a Daley budget will have something to show their constituents.
