Mayor Rahm Emmanuel says that Chick-fil-A’s values aren’t Chicago values.
Our Corporate Purpose calls for us to be “a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us” and “to have a positive influence on all who come in contact with Chick-fil-A.” With this in mind, Chick-fil-A cares about and is committed to being good stewards of the environment, as well as the communities in which we operate.
You know, I can believe that Hizzoner got it right. Faithful stewardship has rarely been a hallmarks of Chicago politics. Creating an environment where the death toll from gang violence is greater than a real world combat zone can’t really be called having a positive influence on the community in which one operates.
