On February 9th, 2017, at the Branch Community Church, Alderman John Arena talked for over 2 hours, and never mentioned that he already agreed, in a court settlement dated Jan. 27th, 2017,to support a zoning change that could allow a low income housing project at 5150 N. Northwest Hwy. This is an act of fraud upon the community, and by signing the agreement, Arena has a clear conflict of interest. Arena is saving his own skin, at the expense of the constituents he is supposed to represent.

There she was, Anna Sobor, former (OIPA) President, assisting Ald. John Arena in denying entrance to an estimated 700 tax-paying concerned citizens, who wanted to hear and or voice their opinion on a controversial proposed 7-story low-income CHA Section 8 voucher ready building at 5150 N. Northwest Highway. That is a certainly not behaving like a good NW-side neighbor.
