Bring your best Democrats’ hypocrisy & racist bias April 23
Email from Cappleman’s office:
Alderman Cappleman is inviting you and your neighbors to a meeting to discuss the possible lifting of a moratorium in your area. Please pass this information on to your block members and neighbors.
Alderman Cappleman and I met with a potential new tenant that would like to lease the former JJ Peppers site at the corner of Lawrence and Sheridan to open a Circle K and Subway franchise that would include selling packaged alcohol. The business owner, Mr. Dipak Bhatt, operates a number of Subway and Circle K franchises in Illinois and Indiana.
As you may know, there is a moratorium on packaged goods licenses on Sheridan that would prevent a new license to sell liquor. They are asking Alderman Cappleman to lift the moratorium in order to be able to sell packaged alcohol at the Circle K as they do for their other locations. There were some concerns in the past about the need for a state exemption for this location due to the Sarah’s Circle women’s shelter, but their attorney researched the location and confirmed that the shelter is not within the distance to prohibit a license at this address.
Alderman Cappleman would like you to meet with the new potential owner Mr. Dipak Bhatt, someone from the Circle K corporate franchise team, and his attorney Gregory Steadman, to discuss their proposal to lift the moratorium for this business.
When: Monday, April 23 at 7:00 p.m.
Where: Institute for Cultural Affairs, 4750 N. Sheridan, MLK room
