Fioretti to the Mayor Emanuel: No Public Land for Obama Library

Chicago, IL – The following is a statement from mayoral candidate Bob Fioretti on the proposed use of public land for the Obama Library:  

“Chicago should be the home of the Obama Library, but not an inch of public land should go to it.  Period. 

The Emanuel Administration should have been working with the two bids that were coming from UIC and U of I, to ensure we had site control.  They did not, and now they want acres of public space for the library.  Washington Park and Jackson Park are not for sale.

Our public spaces are not the playgrounds for museums for billionaires or libraries, no matter how much they mean.  There is no excuse for how this administration has bungled this situation.  The fact that it might cause us to lose the Obama Library should be a reminder of how this Administration works with the community and what it means by ‘transparency.’”
