Here's a brief write-up on Mr. Macklin's role from the Chicago GOP blog:
I'd like to say thanks to 44th Ward Committeeman Scott Davis, who had the original idea for the complaint, 47th Ward Committeeman David Ratowitz, who wrote the complaint and did all the legal work, 49th Ward Committeeman Suzanne Devane who made much of the media blitz happen and delivered the message at the conference, 6th Ward Committeeman Darnell Macklin who spoke about Human Rights and gave us credibility, ChicagoGOP Chairman Adam Robinson, who took a risk and got behind the effort, and those committeemen (Carl Segvich, Bill Delay), who showed up and brought people to make it clear that yes, we're here, and we've got something to say.That same post has a series of links of all the press coverage the city Republicans got for this event. The photo above is from a Windy City Times article. Those events took play on August 1st and it seems the excitement over the response to Chick-fil-A's CEO stated stand on gay marriage is now old news.
My response still stands, Chick-fil-A would be welcome on this part of town. If Ald. Moreno doesn't want your business on his part of town, come on down to the south side!
BTW, I would be very curious to see Mr. Macklin's remarks. There were no quotes from him in any of those links provided by the Chicago GOP.
