May 1, 2014 — “A great Chicago story” said Alderman Edward Burke upon the conclusion of his tour of the Skolnik headquarters. For more than 35 years as one of Chicago's most respected Aldermen and Chairman of the City of Chicago Finance Committee, Howard Skolnik and Brian Hand welcomed Alderman Burke and his deputy, Peter Andrews to tour. Due to redistricting, Skolnik is now represented by the 14th Ward. We hope that our participation in business growth, neighborhood integrity and safety will continue under the oversight of Alderman Burke.
