When I flew into Marco Island Airport to get lunch, I decided to follow up on a story that includes prior posts on Chicago Clout. Luis Arroyo was the 3rd State Representative and assistant majority leader. He was just served a little love from my friends at the F.B.I. The F.B.I. allegedly followed up on many complaints the Chicago Politicians, Unions, contractors, and the City of Chicago manage to operate.
Luis Arroyo and his wife Maribel are currently enjoying a wonderful Thanksgiving meal at their palatial estate in Marco Island. They get scared easily when walking around their home and batten down the hatches when they suspect the FEDS are snooping around. Hidden behind the garage door is a nice white SUV. This house was just a lot when Luis bought it in 2012. In just the last year, the massive building project resulted in an almost million-dollar winter house. The landscaping is plentiful, and the grass is plush. The paver stone on the driveway looks great. Luis now has a tax bill of only just over $8,000.00. That is way less than the taxes in Chicago for sure. The home boasts of a 2300 plus foot interior, 500-foot enclosed garage, 500-foot enclosed deck, 14 by 24-foot pool, and a 900-foot deck. Amazing how King Luis expected to pay for this amazing construction project. The ceiling is high in the air.
Not bad for an Illinois State Representative that gets paid $77,000.00 plus a year and $111.00 per diem expenses, and extra for additional duties. His work in the transportation section with John D’Amico is tied to the Illinois Senator Marty Sandoval mess.
I am certain Luis was going to entertain at that house and obtain more consulting business. You think since he was given the Illinois State Representative in 2006 and a wonderful easy job at the Department of Water Management, he would be more interested in helping to move the Puerto-Rician Community forward. Luis made massive piles of money from his campaigns that out-powered any rivals. Luis also put his family and friends on the Chicago City payroll. Luis was a real winner when it came to Chicago Unions. Plumber’s Local 130 and teamsters, and electricians lined his pockets.
Luis forgot to help his friends at the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission. When Illinois politicians take money from companies like A.L.L. Construction. They get millions in O’Hare Airport contracts. Frank Coconate was injured while working for A.L.L. Construction, but his workers’ compensation claim is dragging on and on. Luis was always out for Luis and now he is ruined merchandise. Watch the campaign contributions and consulting dry up.
We should see a for sale sign in this yard very soon to pay the legal fees. Just search the crib in the 1800 block of Bayport in Marco Island. Bet it will be a fireside sale. Too bad, so sad.
