To the Developers

While I terribly dislike developers that demolish beautiful historic, culturally significant buildings and ones that destroy our neighborhood by leaving dangerous unsecure holes in their wake... There is something to be said about developers who do their business legally and are being pressured by Alderman Joe Moore for campaign contributions under threat of being run out of town.

It's hard to take a stand when your livelihood is on the line, I'm sure, but isn't there something that can be done about this?

I've spoken with a great number of developers, and they have told me that they would run Joe out on a rail if they could, but they feel that the bully can't be beaten.

How can the vicious circle be broken?

Looking for some developer feedback here.
