Webster Square Opponents Vow to Sue

New, 8 comments

Webster Square has the backing of Ald. Vi Daley, but the fight isn't over, at least not for former 43rd Ward Ald. Marty Oberman, who has promised to file a lawsuit if the development is approved by the City Council. NIMBYs are channeling their rage towards Daley, who has "betrayed" them, as Oberman puts it. "This kind of a move harkens back to the worst days of machine politics 40 years ago when aldermen rubbed these zoning changes in their constituents' faces and completely disregarded the community's wishes," Oberman told the Sun-Times.
