Vanecko Warehouse Problems

This was our pension money, right? How did we make out on this one?
  • Candy Basselen has run a steel fabricating company on the Southwest Side for many years.

    Last summer, she moved it a few blocks south, and City Hall told her she had to get a new business license.

    But they wouldn't give her one.

  • None of this made sense to Basselen because she was just a tenant. She didn't understand why the city wasn't leaning on the warehouse owners to fix the landscaping violations.

    [...] "If the city knew there were code violations, why was the city operating out of the building,'' Basselen says. "The city was utilizing a building they themselves said wasn't up to code.''

    So who owns that building? The mayor's nephew Robert Vanecko and his partners. They bought it with some of the millions of dollars Vanecko manages for five city pension funds.

And the City was paying exorbitant rental fees, well above market rates, just to park dump trucks (Hired Truck dump trucks by the way).

So did we turn a profit? Does anyone know? Is the fund out of danger? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

Just another of the many shakedown scams the city runs on any business stupid enough to locate itself in Chicago. Ask yourself:
Qui Bono?- Who benefits? Who puts the wrought iron fencing in? Who does the landscaping? Who denied the permits. Pray for a runaway Grand Jury to answer these questions!

We need to find out where Vanecko lives and organize a protest on his block DEMANDING he repay every fucking cent he took from our pension.

It doesn't matter the mayor had no idea and never would be involved in anything unethical or illegal. He took the ethics test so he knows it's wrong. Always remember that even though the mayor's friends, business partners and family have done bad things he was not involved.

Just got back from my municipal violation hearing where I had been cited for having a sign in front of my business. Same sign there for past 27 years. $200 fine plus $40 court costs.Watched 3 different calls , all small business men , all with petty cases like mine. City was averaging about $3000 to $4000 in fines a call. When I asked if I could get a license for my sign I was told, no, that there are no licenses for street signs. As some one who has set in juvenile , misdemeanor and criminal courtrooms thousands of times and watched people who have committed crimes walkout with no repercussions, this really pisses me off. Every person I saw in that hearing room today was a hard working person trying to survive in this city today.

talk about shake down at 400 Superiour, if you have a ticket and have photo proof that you are not in the wrong and you have the Pope and Jesus Christ himself as your witness and you want to fight the ticket, you have to give that "COURT" $100 non refundable fee to fight a $100 ticket

Well you didn't think the Daley Crime Family was going to be shaking down people who don't HAVE anything, did you? That would be silly!

And with the Police not bringing in revenue, where's the money gonna come from?

They are counting on guys like you to put up with an occasional fine and court costs figuring that it's cheaper than picking up your entire business and workforce and fleeing to the suburbs. By the time they are proved wrong, there will be a whole new set of crooked politicians in place and a new set of economic problems to blame everything on.

And by the way, what kind of a piece of shit judge or hearing Administrator has the balls to sit in judgement on people like you when crimes of ENORMOUS proportions are being perpetrated against the public every day by the Stuttering Prick and his band of miscreants?

THAT MFer deserves castration!!!!!!

And the beat goes on...

No way - are you kidding? LOL

Who is the owner of the wrought iron fence company that Daley must know?

Who owns/maintains the landscaping business?

I'm sure Daley knows or he will probably say he didn't know that they are clout connected.

That's the way it works here folks.

This is one of the many reasons the city has low revenue and drives business away. I never shop in chicago anymore and try not to in crook county. After the parking meter scam we will never go downtown again. I got married in will county and bought my wifes engagement ring out there also. We got a lot more for less. I know dozens of others who avoid chicago and crook county too.

If you were connected to the Daley crime family you would have had your case dropped for a small fee.

The mayor of Schaumburg was qouted in the paper yesterday that the towns Red Light Cameras were not doing what they were implemented for, to reduce traffic crashes. He is planning on removing them because he wants to attract people to his town to shop and dine, not fine them for going through the red lights.

Get it shortshanks, you have to attract people to this town of shitcago so they we happily spend their money, not extort it from them Get a clue, dickhead.

Today I took my family to the only festival on the lakefront worth going to: Summerfest in Milwaukee.

We enjoyed good music, the company of good friends and weren't bothered by crowds of thugs and criminals preying on victims.

I had to pay to park and pay to get in, but it was worth every penny. I will gladly pay and help boost the local economy up there before I drop a dime in Chicago or consider going to "The Taste" ever again. I even pre-paid and printed my tickets at home for a discounted price of $2 a person.

When we got in the car to head home, I gassed up right near the fest grounds for $2.55 a gallon. Back here, the gas in the city is $2.95.

SCREW YOU DALEY

the common thread with all parking enforcement gestapo uniformed freaks is they are all non white etnics who know better than to try and issue hundreds of bogus tickets in their own neighborhoods, so don' dare park on any city major street this summer whether legally parked or not you have at least 50 percent chance of ticket...not by real police officers!
