Alderman Matt O’Shea on his fun way to help local businesses

Hose Knox, owner of Elmo’s Tombstone Service tackles the backlog of paperwork Thursday, May 28, 2020, in his office surrounded by tombstone design samples and decades old memorabilia on Chicago’s Southside. Knox and his wife, Bobbie, bought the business from Robert Williams in 1987. She died of cancer in 2012, but the 81-year-old Knox continues making tombstones on the city’s predominantly Black South Side, and Bobbie remains listed on his business cards.

Alderman Matt O’Shea of the 19th Ward on the South Side organized a raffle that will help small businesses in his neighborhood during this unprecedented time. And he talks about why he voted “no” on Mayor Lightfoot’s budget.
