Mayor urges council to approve third Wal-Mart

Looks like the Mayor wants movement on that Wal-Mart at Chatham Market:
Mayor Daley today urged the City Council to approve Chicago's third Wal-Mart — at 83rd and Stewart in Chatham — to send a message loud and clear that Chicago is open for business.

Daley acknowledged that he didn't need the City Council to take action. He has the power to grant administrative approval for the Chatham Walmart without aldermanic approval.

But the mayor said he decided to let Finance Committee chairman Ed Burke (14th) take the lead in ending the six-year stalemate.

That is expected to happen Friday.

"If mayor daley does it, the boss does it. He's gonna ram it right through," the mayor said at a news conference at Prosser High School. "You have to educate your alderman that people don't have jobs."
