Office Brokers Rock the Vote

|Speaking of mid-term elections, political pundit Paul Green tried to break them down for the Chicago Office Leasing Brokers Association at a luncheon at NBC Tower Tuesday. Paul says a few races in Illinois have lost some of their significance. Both candidates for governor have failed to focus on the real issue—the state budget—in favor of attacking each other. The race for Obama's former Senate seat has placed too much focus on Broadway Bank, Alexi Giannoulas' family business. In a run for mayor, Obama chief-of-staff Rahm Emmanuel or sheriff Tom Dart will win in a landslide if they don't face each other, Paul says. He urged Chicagoans to vote for a strong mayor because a strong city council has historically been bad for business in Chicago.|
|We snapped JLL's Monica Moore, MB Real Estate's Kathleen Bertand, and Cushman's Steven Bauer before the luncheon. Monica was recently promoted to SVP. We've overheard whispers that Cushman is looking for new leadership in Chicago (again).|
