Sneed Still Dishing Daley
Sneed has learned Mayor Daley has set up his new office at 900 N. Michigan, a site which once housed the doctor’s office where his father, Richard. J. Daley, died of a massive heart attack in 1976. (A new building has since been built at the address.)
All in the family: Sneed is also told Mayor Daley has set up shop with his son, Patrick, who has an MBA and speaks at least three languages fluently. Although the duo has had a loving relationship, it has also been an uneasy one.
To wit: The younger Daley has expressed frustration conducting business in the glare of his father’s influence. Patrick subsequently ran a business in Russia after leaving the military, where he served in the U.S. Army’s 82nd Airborne Division in Afghanistan. Sneed hears the pair might be considering attracting foreign investment for American infrastructure projects.
