I wonder what Crain’s Chicago Business would say about an even clearer conflict of interest, hiring an alderman to do work for the city:

“There is no evidence that Mr. O’Brien’s firm, K-Plus Environmental LLC, or sister firms have been retained by the MWRD, as the district is known, either as a contractor or subcontractor, according to a joint review conducted by Crain’s and the Better Government Assn.

But at least four of Mr. O’Brien’s K-Plus clients are directly regulated by MWRD and participate in the district’s “significant industrial user” program.”
