Da Mayor  Leaving Da Office
Last week, Mayor Richard Daley announced that after 21 years he won't be seeking another term. So we spoke with JLL's Meredith O'Connor—on the Mayor's staff for 16 of those years—about his contributions to our city's real estate.

Meredith says she'll remember her great friend for  Millennium Park and World Business Chicago, two initiatives that drew tourists and businesses alike not just to Chicago, but to the surrounding  six-county region. Changing building codes to enable new technologies and bringing the number of TIF districts in the city from 19 to 156 during Meredith's tenure were huge draws for tenants, she tells us. Meredith hopes Chicagoans will support another  business-friendly mayor for their next leader in March.
