Despite illegal gifts, kickbacks, overcharging & being politically connected the Chicago Public Schools will renew overpriced contracts

Mayor Rahm Emanuel's promises of being a reformer and changer only applies to corporations, companies and people who DON'T donate heavily to him... Chartwells-Thompson Hospitality and Preferred Meal Systems will get their overpriced and corrupt contracts renewed by the Chicago Public Schools

Less than two months after the resignation of a Chicago Public Schools official accused of accepting improper gifts from the district's two largest food vendors, the district on Monday said it intends to renew contracts for those vendors, Chartwells-Thompson Hospitality and Preferred Meal Systems.

CPS spokeswoman Marielle Sainvilus said there wasn't enough time to put the contracts out for a competitive bid.

"Unfortunately that incident occurred because of a lack of judgment, and it's not an incident that's pervasive," Sainvilus said.

Referring to Chartwells, Sainvilus said: "Overall, they still have been a company that our students need in terms of providing food with nutritional value. We want to ensure there's no interruptions for these students just because of the sheer volume" of lunches and breakfasts the company provides.

While the final contract amount has not been determined, CPS says the one-year contract for Chartwells should not exceed $68 million and for Preferred should not be more than $34 million.

Sorry you live in a shit neighborhood, there are a few public schools with much higher standards and the better teachers work there because they don't have to fight every day with asshole kids, plus they are FREE buddy, we already paid for them with OUR tax money.
