A great question that should of been asked would of been: How often in the past has the dealership been visited by city inspectors?

The abuse of power with zero repercussions is astonishing. Chicago is in a death spiral and any criticism warrants her using “idiot” to a very high priced tax payer of her failed mess. These inspectors showing up should be looked at as criminal. #chicago #perillo

One of the violations was for employees and customers not wearing masks? 🙄 Seriously, get priorities straight Chicago.

Is it not obvious that more businesses will be leaving for safer locations?

In about two years @chicagosmayor isn’t going to be Mayor anymore. Joe Perillo will always be Joe.

From Trump to the Perillo guy…why won’t she take any advice for this cities’ violence? She’s just backing up the governor to not do anything that involves helping the black & brown communities so that they can resist crime. Give them jobs!

Abuse of power. Abuse of power. Abuse of power. Shame on anyone who obeyed this sociopath. Nothing drives out business like progressives who have no clue how to run a business.

Our socialist mayor blames the victims and seeks to harm them further if they complain.

The 2nd of 4 characteristics of the evil personality is "extreme overt reaction to criticism or other forms of narcissistic injury." Lightfoot is well known for her vindictive nature.

I think Florida would love to have his business in their state.
