NO BRAG - JUST FACT - WHO'S THE BOSS BEHIND THE MACHINATIONS OF TWDC

Pull the undercover low rider out of the cave and go cruising around Tremont after the sun goes down on just about any given night and "people watchin" takes on a whole new prospective.
Through glass panes and into the dim lights of the many bars and nightclubs, one almost needs a role call roster to mark off the many County and City Hall Employees spotted either perched on a bar stool, tipping a martini glass or flying on the monkey bars. Others have been espied staggering through crosswalks or holding on to the "no parking signs" in search of the "pee house."
Perhaps the recognized faces of the Mayor's cabinet and department officials patronizing the night scenes of these non-compliant and law-breaking establishments might well explain why there are no day visits to the commercial district from the Department of Building and Housing, Code Enforcers, City Inspectors, etc.
However, they make up for lost time by double timing it and throwing themselves into full steam by way of tagging the resident homeowners for their misfortune of not having enough to buy groceries, shoes for the kids and painting the house all from the same check.
If the inspectors come up short, they really mean business when it comes to the homeowner paying dues. One inspector was espied on College Avenue, showing up accompanied by two power whackers, toting long pry bars in hand, and ready for business.
Parking on the opposite side of the fence, the lady inspector laggered behind while the thinner of the two musclemen tapped on the door of the partially fresh painted vacant house, jimmied the window, climbed in - opened the door, walked back out, closed the door, pulled the window back down, and proceeded to knock harded a couple of times on the door again - as if to make a feeble attempt to a legal entry - and then they went in. As the inspector went through the door, she posted a white notice on the outside of the building.
Could this be called a "clean shoot."
Question is: Who is protecting the non-compliant businesses in Tremont? Why is TWDC getting away with underhanded tactics and no consequences? Who is pulling the strings behind the scenes of TWDC? Why is there no accountability within the organization? Why is Building and Housing coming down on resident homeowners and yet refuses to hand out even one violation to law breaking business establishments in Tremont? WHO IS THE BOSS BEHIND THE MACHINATIONS?
