The Chicago Reader offers background to this year's 46th Ward Aldermanic run-off (plus a couple other Ward races in Chicago)... and gives Molly Phelan a thumbs-up:
"As for Phelan, whose specialty is real estate law, she says she inherited a strong belief in social justice from her mother, who was a social worker, and her father, who was a federal prosecutor. "A lot of people thought the Wilson Yard lawsuit was about affordable housing—but it wasn't," says Phelan. "We filed to correct a continuation of an injustice in the TIF law."
Amen to that.
If I lived in the ward, I'd probably go with Phelan."
