We are being taxed, and taxed, City, County and State


Daley's side of all of this


A letter to the Toddler from Commissioners, Claypool, Quigley, Suffredin and Schneider

Out of the new Commissioners, Commissioner Schnieder had impressed me the most, and I have been surprised, since he is Republican, he has worked on things he believes, and feels will help the county. He is always paying attention at meetings and bringing attention to valid points. On the other hand the other new Commissioners, Beavers and Steele....well they are there to to support the Toddler and fight with any Commissioners that don't agree with him.

Bill Beavers Girlfriend files a complaint
The nephew of a former Northwest Side congressman on Thursday emphatically denied making racist and sexist comments to co-workers at the city's Department of Transportation and said he was falsely accused -- and fired -- for cracking the whip against unproductive city inspectors.

Joseph Annunzio, a nephew of the late Rep. Frank Annunzio (D-Ill.), said the woman who filed the bogus complaint is the girlfriend of Cook County Commissioner William Beavers, a former alderman.

Annunzio charged that Patty Young "never wrote any citations, hardly did any work and spent most of her time in the office just walking around." Annunzio said when he "called her on it numerous times," Beavers sent county board liaison Frank D'Amato to deliver a message to Annunzio's father, an aide to Ald. Tom Allen (38th): "Tell your son to leave Beavers' girlfriend Patty Young and her friends alone."

Tom Allen (38th): "Tell your son to leave Beavers' girlfriend Patty Young and her friends alone."
"I am a white supervisor in a position of authority who's holding people accountable to do their jobs and stories are being made up so they don't have to do their jobs," Annunzio said.

"I made people work eight hours a day. They were held accountable for writing citations, inspecting road construction, working with utility companies on street openings and meeting with aldermen to resolve complaints. Everybody was charted on a graph. Most of those with allegations against me were either at the bottom of the chart or have been suspended by me."

Beavers could not be reached for comment. Young acknowledged she's dating Beavers but denied her boyfriend stuck up for her -- or sent an emissary to order Annunzio to back off.

More on Patty Young, a.k.a. the "Hog with big Nuts" girlfriend.
Suffredin said that possibility ended with news of the administration giving a job to the girlfriend of Commissioner Bill Beavers -- Todd Stroger's chief ally on the board.

"I am just shocked that while we were meeting last week (to consider raising taxes) that they were hiring Beavers' girlfriend," Suffredin said.

After the Chicago Sun-Times inquired about the case, the administration let the woman go -- just two days after hiring her.

Suffredin did still leave open the possibility that he will support some other tax to cover the $113 million more in expenditures he voted for by giving state's attorneys and public defenders cost-of-living salary increases.
Rumors are true, Lance Tyson got an attitude with Commissioner Maldonado.
With Suffredin opposed to a sales tax, Stroger must now woo Commissioner Roberto Maldonado, who is angry with Stroger's chief of staff, Lance Tyson, for threatening to kill a pro-immigrant measure Maldonado succeeded in passing. Tyson did not deny the threat.

To pass the sales tax, Stroger also needs the vote of Commissioner Earlean Collins, who has been non-committal about the sales tax, but said she supports some form of revenue increase.

Northwest suburban Commissioners Tim Schneider, Gregg Goslin and Liz Gorman all oppose the sales tax hike.

    The second you drive out of Cook County gas stations, places that sell liquor and cigarettes have really big, no Cook County taxes, that how you know you have just left the County limits

    I certainly wouldn't visit CC to stop by for gas or even buy gum. The ridiculous tax hike is getting out of hands. And many of the CC board members including Urkel should take a paycut.

    The cat was in Springfield all week. The cat met a medical worker who couldn't afford to save lives in Chicago anymore and couldn't afford to buy a house, so he moved to Springfield and works as a parking garage attendant.

    THAT IS AN OUTRAGE!!!!!!! HOW DARE THESE POLITICIANS FILL THEIR WALLETS AND THE WALLETS OF THEIR FRIENDS AND RELATIVES AND CAUSE THE HARD WORKING HEROES TO MOVE ELSEWHERE!!!!!!!!! WHAT A WASTE OF TALENT AND EDUCATION!!!!!!!!!

    Wow, unbelievable. Isn't Springfield the capitol of Illnois? And if so, how is the capitol doing financially as comparison to Chicago and Cook County? But, seriously, the new article that Chicago Native posted on the tax hike in plain ridiclous.

    Speaking of ridiculous, I jst got my property tax bill. Yes, my tax bill is higher this year. I am paying more in taxes for the schools, colleges, and the city than last year! Go figure.

    Anything not run by the Toddler or has the Toddler anywhere near it has to be better off financially.
