Sources say State Rep Linda Chapa-LaVia has heard the public, her supporters and everyone with common sense loud and clear they don't want to see taxpayers spend over a MILLION DOLLARS more on a failed restaurant row scheme for a pizza place in downtown Aurora that would personally benefit her.
The political insider scheme, explained in more detail HERE, based upon inflated appraisals, would involve the Chapa-LaVia family selling 29 W. New York Street to their own LLC, using taxpayer funds to gain for themselves, including wiping out a $750,000 debt with Banco Popular.
And, according to many of her supporters, she knows this situation will be making a deal with the devil himself, Aurora Mayor Tom Weisner, who will turn her into the "fall guy" for anything that goes wrong with the restaurant row scheme, which is likely to fail again no matter what is put there.
Yet, despite the facts, numbers and outrage from everyone across the community, it appears Linda Chapa wants the money and is willing to risk political suicide to get it.
Unless she kills the deal, orchestrated by the mayor and her house husband, Vernon LaVia, who's primary claim to fame is bird watching, the rising political career of Linda Chapa will come to a screeching halt.
A political self-execution is currently scheduled for next Tuesday, February 26th, 6pm at the Aurora City Council meeting where the million dollars restaurant row scheme will have a vote.
Without her killing the deal, the only other chance to prevent political suicide is if the rubber-stamp city council votes against the scheme.
Linda Chapa's popularity began when she defeated one of the worst candidates in the history of politics. That person was Bob O'Connor, the wild spending, taxpayer exploiting, conduit for corruption alderman from Aurora. She smacked him and been unstoppable ever since.
She was considering running for Mayor in 2013 before her property, at 29 W. New York, became part of this latest restaurant row scheme risking another million dollars from taxpayers.
