CC meeting with President Bobbie Steele





Todd Stroger already breaking campaign promises by bringing Nichols back. Nichols who is under Federal investigation for being patronage chief.

First promise by Todd broke

As I watched the last Cook County Board meeting, and watching Todd in the audience looking like a spectator, not taking any notes.......I worry,really worry. Alderman, uh um soon to be commissioner Beavers next to him no pen in hand either.
Forrest Claypool brought up a very good point "Why do we keep approving proposals, contracts etc. When they are still in negotiations?" He also brought up the that this will be something he is will work on in the next term. Go Forrest!
Mike Quigley then asks President Steele how far along are they on the next budget that is due in February? Of course Mike Quigley pointed out "I know you have not had a lot of time" Yes and President Steele pointed out "Yes there has not been much time". Yes, there has not much time because of all the questions, and questionable activity leading up till John Stroger's resignation. But President Steele did point out that they were working on it.
Something commissioner Moreno pointed out that when the County bids on contracts and does not pay right away they factor this in when they compensate vendors for this. Let's pass the budget on time so we have less of this, and work on the Accounts payable, purchasing end to stop it as well
I will give Steele this, she does move the meeting along and on agenda. Somehow I can not picture Todd doing half as well.

    "Cook County Board President-elect Todd Stroger now says he will not fire the county's controversial patronage chief right away but will keep Gerald Nichols on the payroll into January -- despite a federal investigation into allegations that Nichols fixed jobs."

    Man, you all have problems.. Stroger will keep Nichols on the payroll.. Must be nice...

    Great pics.. I guess that is the "El" that you were saying.. Now, I can see the actual picute of the "El." It certainly doesn;t look like the subway in New York. You have to excuse me.. I only seen the subway most of my life but I have never seen a subway that is not underneath the ground.. It is nice to visit other states because there are things in each state that I never known...

    Yes we do have problems. The City of Chicago and Cook County are so intermingled in the same mess, I don't know how much man power they have over at the DOJ to untangled this and figure it out. Todd Stroger was a City Alderman, who now will be President of Cook County, William Beavers was an Alderman who is now going to be a Cook County Commisioner, and that is just touching upon the mangled mess. I am would think the DOJ has to dive into the mess in Cook County and visa versa to untangle the City of Chicago mess.

    It is kind of hard for the DOJ to dive into the mess and corruption in Chicago if they had decent budget and some non-corrupted employees working there.. don't you think so?? DOJ lost good attorneys such as Heuston and Berkowitz....

    Sorich's lawyer yesterday said the Fed's have gone wild in Chicago and are out of control with who they are investigating. I am sure there are as many complaining about the Feds as there are to the Feds. Maybe someone higher up is putting them on a tight budget, or they are interviewing now, but Cook County & Chicago are intermingled tight really tight.

    "Maybe someone higher up is putting them on a tight budget"

    Yes, for political or business reasons. One hand washes the other...
