“Did you know that Cook County has the highest property taxes in the COUNTRY? This is what’s driving people out of Cook County. This situation has been magnified by COVID-19 and the lack of response to its impact on property tax assessments.”

“I’ve served as the first ever full-time commissioner at the Board and am running for re-election because I love my job. Each day, I get to help regular taxpayers who believe they are over assessed, by applying experience accumulated over thirty years in the real estate and property assessment field.”
