No public funds for Ricketts family

I was pleased to hear Mayor Rahm Emanuel say that the Cubs and the Ricketts family will not be the recipients of funding for renovations to Wrigley Field.

The Ricketts family with their millions are amply capable of investing and reaping the rewards of their investment without the public support.

There are many other areas of endeavor which requires public assistance in the city of Chicago. I haven't heard of the Cubs or Ricketts putting up funding to support community centers or educational programs which are sorely needed.

The money to invest in Wrigley should come from the Ricketts family and their efforts improving the quality of the team will assure their return on investment. The fans who support the team would return to see them play championship baseball.

Good luck with that.
