It's not like I wasn't a Tom Tunney fan already.
Prior to being the alderman of the 44th ward, he was the very public face of the Ann Sather's restaurant on Belmont.
Many a time I'd stop off after work too tired to cook, too hungry to wait and too poor to buy groceries. Methinks Mr. Tunney recognized all three and would slip a sister a complimentary bread plate to go along with my vegetable soup.
'Cause you know bread ain't free when you only order a cup of soup.
He was kind enough to chat as well. To make me feel welcome despite the fact I was spending less than five dollars (with tip).
As you can see I've never forgotten the gesture.
So it should come as no surprise that as the Alderman Tunney is leading the way to forge a set of behaviors and practices for developer/neighborhood relations.
Behold another aldermanic rock star.
