Patronage hires at Cook County?


Wake up and smell the coffee Todd, you are gettting a lot people up in Cook County good and fluffed up. Cook County Commissioner's will not cut until Todd Stroger makes cuts in his office first. Commissioner Earlean Collins came up with this one. A quote from Earlean "In a budget hearing Tuesday, Commissioner Earlean Collins challenged Stroger to "lead by example" and eliminate patronage jobs she says still line the budget. "Until I see a level playing field ... I'm not cutting one dime," she said. "This is not a child's game here." Nice job Earlean! Challenge Todd as frequently and as often as you like!

A partial list of Todd's patronage hires.
• Bruce Washington (primary campaign manager for Todd's dad) -- director of capital planning policy -- $133,424.
• David Fagus (49th Ward Democratic committeeman) -- was earning $87,479 as executive assistant at Cermak Hospital, now the COO earning $113,703.
• Matt Deleon (pal of the finally fired Gerald Nichols, unofficial county patronage chief whose records were raided by the FBI) -- jumped from $87,478 as an administrative analyst to $141,725 as secretary to the Board of Commissioners).
• Cedric Giles (son of a convicted alderman, relative of a former state rep) -- from a $62,052 accountant to fill a two-year vacancy in the comptroller's office, an arguably non-essential job, with a huge pay boost to $103,187.
• Donna Dunnings (John Stroger's niece, Todd's cousin) -- remains budget director at a salary of $142,820.
• Carmen Triche Colvin (wife of Todd's best friend, state Rep. Marlo Colvin) -- promoted from the Forest Preserve to County Purchasing Agent. Former salary, $95,000. New salary, $126,670.
• Monique Martin (Todd's sister-in-law) -- becomes his personal secretary at $64,983.
• Mark Kilgallon (19th Ward clout) jumped from $141,725 to $159,815, now working as chief administrative officer.
• Kim Gilmore (close pal of Todd's) -- promoted in human resources from a $112,670 to $141,725.
• Derek Blaida (former Daley aide) --new head of intergovernmental affairs making $130,019.
• Dwight Welch (mayor of Country Club Hills who recently got a pay raise as mayor) -- also works for Stroger cousin Donna Dunnings in the Budget Office. Salary $104,030.
• Frank Zuccarelli (Thornton Township Democratic committeeman) -- works for recorder of deeds, makes $82,105.
• Marlo Kemp (former assistant to John Stroger) -- now deputy CFO from $90,228 to $127,423.

    White Hen? Is that convient store like 7-11?

    I can solve Todd Urkel's budget? Are you ready? It is the ridiculous salary of the friends and convicts that he hired. Remove the garbage and Todd and you see the city almost in the black! Man, they are getting big bucks off the coat tail of the Toddster. And ex-cons can feel proud that they can get a job in Chicago in Urkelville thanks to the Toddster. He is 100% "equal opportunity employer." LOL!

    Yes White Hen's are like 7/11's as a matter of fact 7/11 bought them all up. They were indigenous to Chicago area only.

    Yes, and to watch Todd in action is really upsetting. He needs to get serious, all his grinning and smirking.

    Oh the Chimp was downstate driving Caterpiller equipment, saw it on the news last night. Shouldn't he be in DC taking care of all the international issues? Here's another one, he needs to get serious, oh ya, Cheney is running things.
    Special Prosecutor Biloxi said...
    Yeah, I just heard about the Gerbil's accident today. Can't tske that idiot anywhere! He 's yearning the bottle again!

    7/11 brought White Hen's up. Man, you learn something knew. We have 7/11's, mom and pop convient stores, and we have Circle K.

    If Todd keeps smirking and not do his job, I have a feeling that there will be uproar in Chicago.

    And of course, Cheney is running the WH. After Cheney has over 88 employees under him. I womder how many employees are really under the Gerbil.
