It’s Clear - Chicago Alderman Can Do Whatever They Want

Brendan Reilly, alderman for the 42nd ward in Chicago, has a real estate lobbyist, Madeline Doering, as his effective Chief of Staff. Doering represents some of the largest real estate developers in the city, including Wirtz Realty and Fishman & Co. With a salary of $10,000/month, her position is a clear conflict of interest. Dan Proft & Amy Jacobson talked with Faisal Khan, CEO of Project Six, about this discovery and why it proves that Chicago aldermen continue to do as they please without any real ramifications.
