Carrie Austin (34th) has crafted a new episode — by installing her son as her ward superintendent….The 34th Ward was one of ten wards involved in a 10-week surveillance that prompted then-Inspector General David Hoffman to conclude in 2008 that Chicago was wasting $21 million-a-year on garbage collection crews ‘paid to do nothing for 25 percent of their time on the clock.”
