    RE: DNA’s article referenced in the second headline from above

    Ald. Reilly doesn’t think he is rich……even though he earned $104,101 in 2012! Ha! A rich man doesn’t think he’s rich. Herein lies a symptom of a systemic societal issue of warped perceptions of income & wealth.

    Here’s Reilly’s quote from yesterday, which was in relation to his bemoaning of the costs to park private motor vehicles on public streets in some of the city’s most densely-populated areas:

    “There’s a misperception that Downtown Chicago is only a place where very rich people live, and I can assure you there are a lot of young people who live downtown who are not rich, but love the Downtown experience, and very much wish to be able to continue to afford it,” Reilly said. “That statement applies to me, too.”

    Here’s the data on Reilly’s and other (rich) aldermanic salaries:

  • Yep, I think Reilly can afford to pay for a few extra hours of parking.
