Dear Mr. Daley,
Now that you are retired, perhaps you will find time to take a stroll through the park and the neighborhood, if just to see what it turned into during the many years of your time in the office.

Fish Dying off in the Marquette Park Lagoon

My friend Karen just told me about something very disturbing happening in the park. Today I went to see it for myself, and what I saw was far more disturbing than I’ve expected. What caused such massive die off of all the fish? There is a chemical plant not too far away, and the winds blow to the park from that direction, from the West. Then there is the run-off water from the neighborhood school poring discarded stinky water to the lagoon all year round (that was a GREEN project). Such things are happening elsewhere too. What is causing fish to die off like that? We want to know. This is the first time in my long life, and, hopefully, the last time that I’ve got to see such disturbing massive destruction in our park.
