Motorola should have moved into that gleaming hulk Illinois sunk big bucks to help them build in Harvard. It’s still sitting there empty as far as I know. Below via the DH (link below) with Joe Walsh on the move.
With the announcement of Motorola Mobility moving from Libertyville to downtown Chicago, Congressman Joe Walsh said Motorola’s move only gives off the appearance that Chicago is “on its way back.”
During a taping of WBBM Newsradio 780-AM’s “At Issue” from his Schaumburg congressional office, the McHenry Republican criticized the move and Democratic Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s part in the announcement that came Thursday, saying luring “symbolic” companies like Motorola Mobility and its 3,000 jobs from the suburbs won’t solve Chicago’s financial problems. The series of congressional interviews is being produced by WBBM in collaboration with the Daily Herald.
