The Politics Behind Webster Square

So what brought about Ald. Vi Daley's sudden change of heart on Webster Square? Opponents of the plan tell Crain's columnist Greg Hinz that Mayor Daley had a big hand in it. "The mayor did get involved," former 43rd Ward Ald. Bill Singer said, adding that developer Richard Zisook personally presented the plan to Daley. As Hinz points out, the only person who knows exactly what role clout may have played in her decision is Vi Daley, and she left town for a two-week vacation, further angering Lincoln Park NIMBYs.
