Mayor Emanuel’s choice for a $99 million contract to do cleanup at O’Hare comes under more fire. Pointing to allegations first reported by WGN, a group of Chicago aldermen has asked the city to re-bid the contract.
United Maintenance president Richard Simon has worked hard to polish his image. But his past came front and center tonight in another WGN investigation.
The report cites alleged mob connections of the company’s founder, employees with criminal records, and the mysterious disappearance of the mistress of Simon’s one-time mentor and boss.
