(CHICAGO) At city hall, another alderman is standing up to the mayor.
Remember when Rahm Emanuel said this? “Chick-fil-A’s values are not Chicago’s values.”
The mayor said it to help block a Chick-fil-A in Logan Square because the company’s boss says marriage is between a man and a woman.
Well now, downtown Alderman Brendan Reilly is saying the company’s boss is wrong, but so is City Hall’s boss.
“I don’t think we should be barring businesses from coming to Chicago based on distasteful views held by executives,” Reilly said. “My experience with Chick-fil-A in downtown Chicago has been a very positive one. They dig deep and they get involved in their community. I’ve never seen anyone discriminated against at their store.”
That’s why Alderman Reilly gave Chick-fil-A the green light to put a store downtown at state and lake.
