Chamber President & CEO Theresa E. Mintle penned a Letter to the Editor featured in Crain’s Chicago Business on October 17 on the negative impact the Choose Chicago funding freeze will have on the city.
From the LTE:
Are we really going to stop competing in our own back yard?
The funding freeze to Choose Chicago will have a profoundly negative impact on job creation and future tax revenue, making the economic situation in our city and state much worse.
Choose Chicago is a great example of the private sector, government and labor working together. This is a call for leadership from all sides to collaborate on tough choices. It is time for everyone to come to the table so that we have a shot at remaining the best place to live, work and visit in the nation.
