Supporters Of TIF Sunshine

2009_02_16_scott.JPG Ask, and ye shall receive. After Saturday’s post about a possible TIF transparency requirement, we bothered Ald. Scott Waguespack (32nd, pictured right) about the list of his fellows who signed on in favor of the proposal. He says he ran out of time to gather more than the 20* signatures below at the city council meeting last week - but that he hopes to get about nine more in the coming weeks. The ordinance would require documents relating to TIFs - from weekly payroll reports to annual filings - appear on their own website, indexed for the ease of public use. The new people on Mayor Daley's "enemies list" are:

  1. Scott Waguespack
  2. Manny Flores (1st)
  3. Richard Munoz (22nd)
  4. Bernard Stone (50th)
  5. Toni Preckwinkle (4th)
  6. Joe Moore (49th)
  7. Thomas Tunney (44th)
  8. Ed Smith (28th)
  9. Ray Suarez (31st)
  10. Ariel Reboyras (30th)
  11. Eugene Schulter (47th)
  12. Brendan Reilly (42nd)
  13. Pat Dowell (3rd)
  14. Robert Fioretti (2nd)
  15. Sharon Denise Dixon (24th)
  16. Vi Daley (43rd)
  17. Willie Cochran (20th)
  18. Rey Colon (35th)
  19. Toni Foulkes (15th)
  20. Thomas Allen (38th)
*We reported 22 originally, per Waguespack, but he checked his numbers when he composed this list today.
