Daley declines to answer questions about insider’s Olympics deal

Posted by Dan P. Blake at 1:50 p.m.
Mayor Richard Daley today declined to answer questions about a Tribune story on how a member of his Olympic bid team arranged to develop city-owned land near a park that would be transformed for the 2016 Summer Games, potentially positioning himself to cash in if the Games come here.

Developer Michael Scott Sr., an early member of the mayor’s Olympic committee, leads a group planning a residential and commercial project on lots kitty-corner from the proposed Douglas Park sporting venues, a location where land values could jump if the city gets the Olympics.

The mayor’s refusal to talk about Scott’s Douglas Park project came at a Northwest Side CTA station where he discussed the city’s plan for construction projects in the coming years. Daley’s public schedule indicated he would only be taking questions on that topic today, but a throng of reporters showed up and asked him about Scott’s project.

Daley, however, said he would only be taking questions on the city’s construction plans. “I’m sorry I can’t answer questions every day. Every day, I do it enough,” Daley said.
Asked by a Tribune reporter when he would be available to talk about Scott’s project, Daley said the question insulted him.

“Oh, I do it everyday, you’ve been with me every day. Never insult me with that question,” Daley said. “You’re insulting me because every day I’m here, you’re never here. And don’t print that, so I know you’ll print it.”
Daley’s press staff then ended the news conference.
