Advisor to wealth

Owner of Cardenas and Associates, which advises many Fortune 500 companies, George Cardenas is a friend to the Chicago Democratic establishment.[1]

He also received a many donations over $20,000 from building trades, developers and real estate companies, implying that he's willing to trade his zoning privilege for campaign donations.[2]
