Businesses You Don't See Because of Alderman Witkowski

Sometimes my efforts are channeled into not having something happen. Sometimes neighbors are involved and sometimes not. What did not happen since I was elected:

  • A pawnshop did not open on S. 27th St.
  • A counseling center for felons did not open at S. 19th St. and W. Windlake Ave.
  • A onetime strip club on W. College Ave. did not reopen.
  • A bar did not go in at S. 17th St. and W. Lincoln Ave. (there are 61 others within one mile).
  • A hip hop/country western bar did not open at S. 9th St. and W. Layton Ave.  
  • A troubled bar did not reopen at S. Howell Ave and W. Plainfield Ave.
  • A payday loan did not come in at W. Euclid St. and S. 27th St.   
  • A business did not expand into a residential neighborhood at S. 27th and W. Goldcrest.
  • A used car lot did not open at S. 16th St. and W. Oklahoma Ave.
  • A gas station/convenience store did not open at S. 16th St. and W. Morgan Ave.
  • A used car lot did not open at S. 9th St. and W. Grange Ave.
