    The SRO conversion/demolition moratorium ordinance was passed by the Chicago Committee on Housing and Real Estate this morning by a voice vote. The only person who gave a no vote and a anti-moratorium speech was my former Alderman James Cappleman, who left long before any pro-moratorium testimony was given.
