Various civic organizations from across the city have united and pledged to watch closely any attempt of Mayor Rahm Emanuel to use of the Investment Trust for making infrastructure improvements. The controversial amendment passed the City Council in April. Members of the group agree that the trust lacks sufficient oversight to protect taxpayers’ dollars.
There will be a program, free and open to the public, to educate residents of the city about privatization, sale of Infrastructure, and the inherent dangers of the Investment Trust. The event will feature a panel of speakers, and a presentation, on Saturday, June 23rd, starting at 1:00 PM, at 300 S. Ashland Avenue, Chicago.
