Where Was This Picture Taken?
Over the weekend, a campaign mailing from Patrick Daley Thompson hit our mailbox.
Because Patrick is a candidate for 11th Ward Alderman, we were surprised to see a bunch of high-rise buildings printed on it.
So we asked ourselves: where exactly are the high-rises in the 11th Ward?
Is this over by Freddie’s?
Is this the Appleville apartments? Or over by Shinnick’s?
No and no.
Maybe it’s by Sox park? The old Amp? University Village?
It’s downtown. Which is where Patrick Daley Thompson does his job as real estate attorney and lobbyist for big business. Where he helps the connected get their hands on our tax money.
So the next time you take a walk down our Haslted St. and wonder why there are so many empty storefronts in our neighborhood with Thompson signs mounted inside the empty windows, remember where Patrick Daley Thompson is coming from. Remember what he’s thinking about.
It’s not the 11th Ward.
