Outgoing Cook County Board President Bobbie Steele today officially resigned the county commissioner seat she was re-elected to earlier this month, a move that will let her double her annual pension.Steele, who has served on the board since 1986, was re-elected Nov. 7 to another four years as a county commissioner. She has also served as president of the board since Aug. 1 after commissioners picked her to fill the unexpired term of former board President John Stroger, who retired after suffering a stroke.

By resigning as board president and not returning for another term as commissioner, Steele, 69, will collect a pension based on her outgoing salary as board president, instead of her lower commissioner pay. The move will double her annual pension to $136,000 a year. The resignation is effective Thursday.Steele is expected to ask the committeemen in her district, which includes portions of Chicago's West and South Sides, to select one of her sons, Robert B. Steele, as her replacement on the County Board.A spokesperson for Steele declined to comment.

    And she is 69 years old? She is collecting some big bucks for pension. And now she is going to work for Todd and wants her son replaced her job. Man, that is a trip.. All in the family. Steele may think she is getting over but it will come back to bite her. When you do wrong, it will come back in full circle.

    Rumors have her going to work for Todd. But Rumors in this town usually come true.
    Now is the time when candidates for Alderman start crawling out of the wookwork....or being let out of the pokey. This is the start of an interesting political season right here. The Alderman's elections.

    Can you follow all the Sorich, Sorich's Dad, Mayor Daley, Brother Daley, Brother Daley goes to fundraiser for Sorich, Secretary of Mayor married to a Sorich. That's how things are in the County and City, you have to have connections in both and move your family +/or connections back and forth.

    Yes, I can follow the family connection. I just sound like a remake of a mafia movie. the Sorichs, Steeles, Daleys, amd so on sounds like the Gerbil family. Everyone getting a pie of the profit and postion in Illnois. It is really sad that the people of that state have to flip the bill to pay for their lifestyle. They are no different from the POTUS and the veep.
