Chatham business owners convened Thursday for a roundtable discussion with Mayor Rahm Emanuel at the QBG Foundation (QBG), 806 E. 78th St.
The mayor visited the Chatham community several times while on the campaign trail including a stop at Izola’s Restaurant during a neighborhood listening tour to learn what Chicagoans wanted in a mayor. He explained that his visit last week carries the same momentum.
“I came to Chatham during the campaign, and I’m here again, because I want Chatham, and places like Chatham, to have the same type of growth, investment, and opportunity as we see downtown,” said Emanuel.

You can read it online at the link above or pick up a copy of the newspaper in several locations.

Thanks to Strannik_REB45 for sending us a Tweet on the link. Larissa Tyler of the QBG Foundation and Citizen Newspaper also posted the news on Facebook.

I am wondering -- did the Mayor know that the restaurant he visited was closed?  Does he even care?
