GOV, county to take public input on budget tonight at Proviso East

Want to comment on the Cook County budget proposed by Board President Todd Stroger? Tonight is your opportunity. See Cook County Info Center.
Tuesday, January 30, 2007 6:30 p.m.
Proviso East High School
Auditorium
807 South First Avenue
Maywood, IL

What would you like to say?

Should Stroger attend the hearings to take the heat for his budget?

Stroger's spokesman says the budget was proffered in good faith. But Commissioner Bill Beavers, Stroger's closest ally, says the cuts to the Sheriff and health system aren't going to happen.

But if Team Stroger was trying to inflict so much pain the commissioners passed a tax increase, wouldn't it make sense to hold off on the patronage hiring until after the tax increase arrive? Is Stroger greed, arrogant or incompetent?
