It looks like ex-Mayor Richard Daley's nose wants to tell Northwest Indiana what it should and shouldn't do.

He had to bring college students from a Chicago university to Gary to tell them how to deal with abandoned buildings. He forced his politics on Gary to rename it the Gary/Chicago International Airport. He quit his job just before some of his pet alderman went to jail for stealing.

Now he is here to force the Illiana tollway through Indiana. He gave away his tollway losing money for Chicago, he closed Meigs Field without notice and lost money for the city. He forced the park district to give up land for his project. The stainless steel $650,000 egg was a bargain.

Now he wants to bring his crooked politics in Indiana.

He also would like us to give up our gun rights because he and his staff did nothing to fight crime in Chicago. He changed police chiefs, but did nothing about felons running loose.

Go home, and take your politics with you.

Do you think the Lake County Solid Waste Management District should pay its new director less than its former director?
