WMAQ Channel 5 - Editorial 5 - "Parking Garage Sale" (1979)

Here's an editorial by Dillon Smith, Editorial Director of WMAQ Channel 5, in which he brands Mayor Jane Byrne's proposed sale of city parking garages to interested bidders a "mistake," saying once the easy cash from a proposed sale is spent from within the next year's city budget, the garages are "gone forever," whereas if the garages weren't sold, the city would profit from them forever.

He proposes that if the parking garages aren't making enough money, the city should just raise parking rates, and cites the rates of the city-owned parking lot of 320 North La Salle Street in contrast to the rates of privately-owned parking lots.

Ending title card:

Editorial 5
Dillon Smith - Editorial Director
Monte Newman - General Manager

This aired on local Chicago TV in 1979.
