Mayor Daley’s Ward, the 11th Ward of Chicago has a funny way of doing business. On this website we informed people of the shakedowns contractors experience every day. Also, I hate to tell you but this effects the Inspections that are performed by Chicago City Inspectors. Some Inspectors are informed to give preferential treatment to certain contractors that know how the game is played. It is nothing new for many contractors that payoff local Alderman so their project goes off will little or no friction. In this picture I took a while ago, you will see new multi-million dollar homes right next to railroads that separate Negroes in the Wentworth low income housing. If you look close you will see a Chicago Police officer behind the bridge keeping the Negros on the right side of the tracks. Welcome to Bridgeport, Mansions near low income housing, ghettos, pig and poultry slaughterhouses, and an Oder the stinks to high heaven. No accounting for taste in Bridgeport!
