Cook County terminating Peraica's lease

Chicago Tribune (Hal Dardick) reports that the Cook County board will cancel the lease of Commissioner Tony Peraica's district office at 10001 Roosevelt, Westchester, because Peraica's landlord made "in kind" contributions of space for political campaigns valued in excess of the $6,000 limit imposed by the ethics ordinance.

What is the significance in Proviso?

That office was the campaign office for both the outsider campaign for the Village of Melrose Park (Jesse Martinez and his slate sought to unseat village president Ron Serpico and his slate) and for Proviso Township (the slate led by Theresa Kelly opposed the establishment slate headed by Michael Corrigan).
