PUBLIC FINANCE HIGHLIGHTS
Chicago Transit Authority - Served as co-financial advisor, consulting on general financial matters relative to CTA capital needs and as advisor for its $207 million Capital Grant Receipts Revenue Bonds (Douglas Branch Project).  Also provided financial assistance to secure bond financing for the extensive rehabilitation of rail stations, tracks, signals and other infrastructure improvements.  The bonds were issued as limited obligations of the CTA payable solely from the grant receipts received pursuant to a Grant Agreement between the FTA and the CTA. Served as Special Independent Financial Advisor to the CTA on its planned $1.7 billion pension board financing in 2008.

Chicago Park District - Originally served as financial advisor on $67 million Harbor Facility Revenue Bonds and $75 million Parking Facilities System Revenue Bonds.  Groundbreaking work with the District included the development of new revenue enterprise systems for each of these service units previously managed and operated by District personnel resulting in privatization of their management now working with the district to further develop the Harbor System at 31st Street and Navy Pier.

Chicago Housing Authority - Served as Chair of Finance and Audit Committee on the CHA’s Board of Directors and provided leadership in development of the CHA’s Plan for Transformation which included a capital plan totaling $1.5 billion.  Worked to develop a plan with the CHA and HUD resulting in the Moving to Work Agreement (MTW) which provided for a guaranteed level of federal funding.  The CHA leveraged this guaranteed stream of revenues, secured by the MTW, to provide funding for its capital plan.  This financing represented the first ever “GARVEE” structure for housing authorities.  In 2002, the CHA’s public bond issue was awarded the Bond Buyer’s Deal of the Year.
