MAYOR DALEY LOOKING OUT FOR THE "LITTLE GUY"
Published August 24, 1995
Chicago Mayor Richard Daley "openly touted" his preference for an open-air stadium at the Univ. of Illinois-Chicago yesterday saying residents have "no pot of gold available to plug the gap in a developer's plan for a domed stadium," according to the CHICAGO SUN-TIMES. Daley charged that developer Richard Stein's PSL plan "would squeeze out the little guy in favor of corporations that can afford the hefty stroke." Daley: "This is a big business. They're not worried about Stanley and Joe and Paul and Mary and Tom and Sandy. Those are individual ticket buyers. Maybe they don't need 'em" (Fran Spielman, CHICAGO SUN- TIMES, 8/24). Columnist Jay Mariotti writes, "The most sensible idea ... remains the renovation of the priceless football shrine that is Soldier Field" (CHICAGO SUN-TIMES, 8/24).
