Another candidate for mayor faces ballot challenges

December 22, 2010 (CHICAGO)

Aldermanic challenger Tom Courtney accuses Burnett of owing outstanding fines stemming from code violations at a pair of Chicago properties Burnett allegedly owns.

Burnett says he doesn't owe any money, arguing one fine at a property on West Fulton is actually owed by a concrete contractor. He says that company was fined for vibrations and making too much noise.

Burnett is chairman of the Chicago City Council's Black Caucus.
