Today, Business Week answered my question about why Mayor Daley protects big business like Old Navy more than folks in Old Town, among other places.
It's because ...
"With such pro-business policies, executives say, Daley would likely be a Republican anywhere else," writes Joseph Weber.
The story also answers another question we all have — Why is Daley such a proponent for putting Gigi Pritzker's pet project, the Children's Museum ,in Millennium Park?
Is it to fight racists who live in high-rises on the New East Side?
"The Pritzkers of Hyatt fame added at least $161,500 to [Daley's] coffers in the last election. Penny S. Pritzker (page 12), head of the family's realty unit, credits the efficiency of City Hall with helping to get the 48-story Hyatt Center up swiftly from spring 2003 to its grand opening in mid-2005. "It's very easy to put up a building in this town," says Pritzker."
That must go double for a museum, huh Gigi?
