Actually the last CC meeting was pretty tame. I think it's because there are too many running for CC State's Attorney, since Dick Devine will not be running. I think the Toddler was the last straw for Mr. Devine. The Toddler calling Devine the biggest pain in the Ass in public life he has ever met, did not help thier relationship.
So far Tony Peraica, Forrest Claypool and Mike Quigley are the only Commissioners that have expressed interest in Dick Devine's post. Actually Peraica has been quite subdued since he has expressed interest in becoming CC State's Attorney. This is going to be a very interesting CC State's Attorney's race, very interesting. Also Tom Dart CC Sheriff is interested in running as well. This is going to get good.
Earlean Collins seems to be the smartest of all of the Cook County Commissioners. Tim Schneider, first term Commissioner seems to have a lot of ambition, and really wants to work at being a good Commissioner. He also seems to have a lot of brains and common sense, a lot like Earlean Collins.
Deborah Sims seems to bring up a lot of good points, but she can get whiny, just like she did last meeting.
Just when you think Commissioner Butler is sleeping he speaks, not much but every so often. Speaking of whiny, Donna Dunnings always sounds whiny. Does she ever have a good day or is she naturally like this all the time? And why is it that the Toddler asks her to identify herself each and every time she is asked a question? Like no one knows who she is by now? And why doesn't he do that to everyone?
Andre Garner was absent, I guess after playing "Jonathan" on WGN radio, he is trying to avoid the press.
Bill Beavers, "the Hog with Big Nuts" has to jump in and throw, well...things around so you know he's there and needs nut room.
John Daley, .....well he will be John Daley.
Lance Tyson was busy jumping around and whispering in every one's ear, especially people who the Commissioners were questioning. Maybe he wanted to make sure they gave the right answers?
Well, and Todd, smiling, smirking, chuckling throughout the whole meeting. What else is new?
