Reader’s Dumke Questions Mayor Emanuel’s View Of Parking Meter Lease Deal
He’s the hard hitting investigative journalist/political reporter for the Chicago Reader who did a lot of work (along with Ben Jorvasky) looking into Mayor Daley’s infamous and almost universally hated parking meter lease deal. Dumke had authored three cover stories on the subject.
The always observant Dumke is now seeing what he perceives as a “shift” in Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s view on the lease deal.
In his just published piece, he chronicles Emanuel’s evolving opinion, tracking his view of opposing it during the election and stating he would look into the possibility of renegotiating the deal, to now unblinking acceptance of our city’s 75 year parking meter fate.
