Marianne doesn’t take money from real estate special interests. Meanwhile real estate moguls are cementing their power and influence over incumbent Mayor Curtatone with generous contributions. OCPF records show RedGate developer Greg Bialecki gave $500 on October 17.
RedGate is the company that had the mayor’s backing to avoid paying prevailing wages at the redevelopment of public housing in Clarendon Hill.
That scheme would have have enriched RedGate at the expense of workers. Fortunately the legislature rejected it.
