Major Chicago Magazine/BGA story on UNO

RangelplanecropUNO gets more heat, this time in the form of a long article in Chicago Magazine co-written by the Better Government Association.

Sorry they didn’t mention PURE’s state complaint against UNO, but they did share this quote from me about the $98 million state construction grant: “What on earth was the state thinking?” says Julie Woestehoff, the executive director of Parents United for a Responsible Education, a Chicago advocacy organization. “We have this huge budget crisis. To be giving UNO $98 million—it’s preposterous. It throws into enormous relief the political nature of this organization, the clout they have.”

Also, no photo of Juan’s plane.
