Daley administration wants to fire this guy?
He’s the water dept. foreman who wore his GPS-equipped cell phone on the golf course when he was supposed to be working.
Winston Cole, a $106,115-a-year foreman of sewer bricklayers, got an earlier warning for allegedly driving to Indiana on city time to buy cheaper gas for his personal car and avoid paying Chicago gas taxes, according to co-workers.
What did he do wrong? He wasn’t door-banging for votes, maybe.
More to the point, who is his sponsor? Who sent him?
We know who sent Homero Tristan, just named as the city’s $147,156-a-year Human Resources commissioner, replacing a woman who left the job after a “scathing” report by the federal hiring monitor.
That would be Alderman Danny Solis, 25th Ward, whose political action committee Tristan heads, with help of his wife Isolde — kidding.
Solis’s sister, an old Hillary C. hand, recently headed her campaign but got pushed out last month and may be switching to the Big O.
