    I wish I had the opportunity to meet Arena here. If I did I would have expressed the following:
    Get rid of the 5150 building plan. It is not at all virtuous for the residents who would move in there. Find a better location with easy access to a park and whose residents would feel like part of a neighborhood. 5150 has the Kennedy Expressway and various industrial buildings as their neighbors. If built, it will be near the busiest intersection in Jefferson Park. I would not move my children there. Nobody will choose to pay to live there. it will end up exclusively with voucher residents who are there because they have run out of choices not because they want to be there.
    Listen to your constituents or you will soon be out of a job, Mr. Arena.
