Issued by Counsel for Edward M. Burke
For over 50 years, Ed Burke has served the citizens of the 14th Ward and the City of Chicago honorably and tirelessly. Hisaccomplishments on behalf of the community and his constituents are notable and many.
Any suggestion that Alderman Burke abused his position as a public official for personal gain is simply not true.
The charges are unfounded and not based on actual evidence. We welcome the opportunity to present the complete pictureand all the facts to a jury. We are confident that when that happens, Ed Burke will be vindicated.
