Another Silverstein Credit Grab

Despite her claim in today’s newsletter, Debra Silverstein is not single-handedly responsible for bringing Sunday hours to the city’s libraries. Silverstein attended the private meeting between the Orthodox community and the new mayor at which the issue of Sunday hours was raised, but Silverstein’s claim that she has been working to restore Sunday hours to the city’s libraries and her suggestion that the mayor acted after a meeting  with her,  is yet another of Silverstein’s bald-faced lies. She never supported the idea in the past, and would never dare cross Rahm, since she was well-paid in the form of political contributions from him to keep her mouth shut on anything controversial. Let’s not forget that it was Rahm who cut library hours to save money.

It’s so typical of Debra to take credit for other people’s work.

Again, I salute Kang Chiu and the members of the Coalition of Friends of the City’s libraries for their years of hard work in researching facts and figures and bringing this issue to the attention of the library Board, the City Council, and the public.

They should get the credit, not a sharp-elbowed, lazy alderman like Silverstein.
