Tom was on “Chicago Newsroom” with Ken Davis on April 7, 2016 to talk civics, TIFs and explain why it was great to NOT get the 2016 Olympics and how Chicago is NOT broke. (46 minutes)
The next stage in the evolution of the TIF Illumination Project is here! Help us raise funds to publish “Chicago Is Not Broke. Funding the City We Deserve.” We’ve got the authors all lined up. Will you pitch in so we can publish 5,000 copies?
PLEASE SCROLL DOWN AND SIGN THIS PETITION.
Go the TIF Illumination Project to get the full 2014 analysis of Chicago’s TIF program.
Contribute to the TIF Illumination Project via PayPal (and get some swell swag). We’ve been turned down ten times by national and local foundations.
I don’t believe Chicago is broke. I don’t believe we should’ve been asked to pay $600 million more in property taxes. 15 aldermen agreed. But the rest rubber-stamped Mayor One Percent’s Budget From Hell. Read my op-ed piece in Huffington Post. I lay out three large pots of money that SHOULD’VE been on the table BEFORE we are hit with any new taxes or fees.
I am looking for speaking engagements and presentation opportunities to share this platform. “Chicago is NOT Broke – Funding the City We Deserve.” Use the contact form below to connect…
