Braun Seeks To Take Pulse Of Small Businesses

CHICAGO (WBBM) – Mayoral Candidate Carol Moseley Braun is spending much of this major shopping day visiting with retail merchants in various parts of the city.

Braun tells WBBM Newsradio 780 Political Editor Craig Dellimore that she is concerned about their futures.

Braun said she wanted to visit with neighborhood retailers across Chicago to gauge how they are faring in this tight economy. She says these are the people who can create jobs.

“We’re going to talk to small business and boutiques about how they’re doing; how well they’re doing, because, again, that’s a real nice way to get a handle of, in a sense, of how the economic recovery is really coming – whether or not people are actually seeing recovery; whether they’re seeing people spending money and shopping with them,” Braun said.

Braun is the guest on this weekend’s “At Issue” program, on which she speaks on this and a variety of other topics. “At Issue” airs on WBBM 780 at 9:30 a.m. and 9:30 p.m.

    Once again, all everybody needs to do is Google the following “carole mosley braun scandal” abd you will see everything she did while senator of Illinois. Giving campaign funds to her then-fiance. put on the fire by the Senate for this. She also, against State Department proticol went to visit a Dictator in Africa that the U.S. alleges commited serious crimes. Yet Carole just went anyway. SHE is insidious and the voters of Chicago need to read up on her dark past !

    Great – the busiest shopping day of the year, and she wants to ask business owners stupid questions. Typical political moron !!!

    Instead of Braun “taking the pulse of business owners”, I’d like to see someone attempt to take her pulse – and not find one. Problem solved !!!
