Fewer elected Cook County officials?

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Next week, the Cook County Board will take another crack at trimming down the number of elected county offices.

Recently, an effort to combine the offices of county clerk and county recorder of deeds fizzled.

On Tuesday, the Legislative and Intergovernmental Committee will vote on combining several offices into a single job of county tax administrator. Commissioner Larry Suffredin is pushing the idea. Other sponsors are John P. Daley, Bridget Gainer, Gregg Goslin, Timothy O. Schneider and Peter N. Silvestri.

The committee is a committee of the whole, so Tuesday's vote will be a good indication of the proposal's ultimate fate.
