Baltimore, MD – Houston, TX Mayor Annise Parker and Evanston, IL Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl have been selected as the nation’s top winners in the 2011 Mayors’ Climate Protection Awards, an initiative sponsored by The U.S. Conference of Mayors and Walmart.
Yes, that says 'and Walmart.' So, the mayor's office works with the developers to allow Walmart to build a monstrosity of a big box store in the middle of my residential neighborhood, and the mayor gets an award.
