I’ve got the latest on Todd Stroger’s Friends & Family Plan in my Beachwood column this morning.
And there appears to be no recourse for citizens – short of marrying into the Stroger family and getting on the gravy train.
But let’s not forget who the county takes its cues from. Last week, a federal judge awarded $3.6 million in fees to lawyers who fought for years to keep politics out of City Hall hiring.
It’s easy to decry the Todd Stroger Tax, but there is a Richard M. Daley Tax far more onerous.
