Pay-to-play for developers
Elected in 2015, Milly Santiago has sponsored very little legislation in the city council.More than half of her contributions come from business. Many of these are property developers looking to build in her ward. This includes $5,000 from 4K Diversey Partners, LLC, which bought them the zoning rights to create millions of dollars worth of luxury single bedroom units the community does not want. The 31st ward lies at the edge of Logan Square and is starting to gentrify. Many worry that her working-class Latinx constituents could be displaced if developers determine the future of the neighborhood. She is also supported by state rep Luis Arroyo, whose political committee has donated over $45,000 to her campaign.
Note: Reclaim Chicago and The People's Lobby endorsed Colin Bird-Martinez for 31st Ward alderman.
