Chicago knows from experience how partnerships can sour. Emanuel's Infrastructure Trust, if done right, could be a new model for rebuilding urban infrastructure. Done wrong, it'll be just another hand off of public assets to private control.
Today, I'll vote yes for the Infrastructure Trust Ordinance because I'm confident that it will prove to be an essential positive for our city. Putting my head in the sand, while our great city crumbles around us is not something I'm willing to do.
