Back in July, Governor Rauner’s pals from the National Black Chamber of Commerce gave him a lifetime achievement award for helping foster minority businesses.
I didn’t think he deserved the award in the first place. But given Rauner’s recent veto of state rep Sonya Harper’s urban agricultural zone bill, I say the chamber should snatch it right back.
Because that veto shows the governor has a twisted double standard toward economic development when it comes to helping poor black communities as opposed to rich white ones.
