He has enlisted none other than the great and powerful Alderman Ed Burke in introducting a resolution to make Chicago a “no kill” city. Burke must think there’s an angle in it or he thinks appealing to the well-heeled Chicago animal philanthropists will distract people enough to forget the recent discovery that he runs a $100 million worker’s compensation program completely in the dark.
