A local representative is not pleased with Chicago's response to the Chick-fil-A fiasco.
Rep. Bill Mitchell says he is appalled by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel's response to the Chick-fil-A owner taking a stance on same sex marraige. He feels with Chicago becoming the murder capital of the country, he feels they have other things to worry about then a CEO's stance on a certain issue. Mayor Emanuel has turned down letting Chick-Fil-A build stores in Chicago, since CEO Dan Cathy's stance is against what the mayor considers to be "Chicago values".
Mitchell believes people should not be penalized for an opinion, and he is stunned by Chicago's stance. He says if you are an advocate for or against same-sex marriage, your business shouldn't be penalized. Mitchell pointed out that by turning down Chick-Fil-A to build in Chicago, Mayor Emanuel turned down job opportunities for the city.
Mitchell says the United States has a Bill of Rights for a reason, and everyone is entitled to their opinion. He says those against Cathy's stance need to go back and read the constitution.
Residents of the ward in Chicago where the Chick-fil-A was suppose to go have mixed feelings on Chicago's response to the CEO's remarks.
