September 30, 2013 12:00 am

Isn't it time we heard the honest truth about who are the chief benefactors of this proposed tollway? Isn't it a minuscule group of speculators who bought up the property for and around the proposed Peotone airport, which would use the Illiana tollway as a feeder?

This is an example of arrogant "we know better" politicians blatantly ignoring the wishes of the vast majority of private citizens who will suffer rather than benefit from this boondoggle.
