Thank You, IVI-IPO

Ward 29th Alderman Is Staying Relevant After More Curruption

I am perplexed by the Hoopla of Alderman Graham and her Efforts to Curb Liquor BYOB License when she Single Handedly Gave over $100k of our Tax Dollars to a Convicted Felon Backed Liqour Store. http://trib.in/1mQ6y0C

  • This is an attempt by Alderman Graham to bury her actions. She set aside the moratorium on liquor sales and assisted a convicted felon obtain a license AND TIF dollars for a liquor store. Now she cares about "BYOB" liquor consumption?! There needs to be an investigation into her actions concerning this liquor store license, the TIF dollars used for it and also, the Truth and Deliverance Church (she is member) and their financial dealings (mostly failures with tax dollars) in the community.
