Chicago’s Richest Man Moves $22B to Miami Following Crime Complaints

Chicago’s wealthiest man is moving his $22 billion company from Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) city to Miami over complaints about crime.

Ken Griffin is moving his hedge fund, Citadel Securities, to Florida, citing the state’s business environment.

“If people aren’t safe here, they’re not going to live here,” Griffin told the Wall Street Journal.

“I’ve had multiple colleagues mugged at gunpoint. I’ve had a colleague stabbed on the way to work, countless issues of burglary. I mean, that’s a really difficult backdrop with which to draw talent to your city from.”

Griffin’s relocation will negatively impact the finances of both Chicago and Illinois as a whole. According to spokesman Zia Ahmed, he had donated hundreds of millions of dollars to local charities while living in the Windy City.

Crime in Chicago has jumped since the COVID-19 pandemic, increasing by 36% in 2021.

    Chicago was once my favorite city to visit. I always felt safe, and we enjoyed the restaurants, and stores. A beautiful city has now become a playground for thieves, thugs, and killers. A once beautiful city has become a city to stay away from. So sad the Democrat politicians have ruined another city. Get in line New York, you’re next.

      VERY SAD!!! I used to live in a suberb of Chicago and loved to take the train to shop and go to museums, parks and other venues.
      When we moved to another state, we visited our families in the suburbs, at least three times a year with our children and toured downtown and other towns.
      We won’t be coming back because of the dangers in Chicago
      Now we would be afraid to go

    I love Chicago; my daughter and I travel (used to) to visit friends in the city. Not now; when the mayor requires a 100+ person personal security detail, it doesn’t inspire confidence. the Mayor seems more concerned with the rights of criminals that rights of the the citizens. She makes her choices and I make mine….and mine is to steer clear of the city.
