The Calm after the Storm in Chicago


I was not an ardent supporter of the President of the United States Elect, Barack Obama. However, Chicago never looked so good as during last night's election coverage. We all feel pretty good about ourselves today. We feel calmer.


Now, if all the Obama supporters and Chicago voters would take the same enthusiasm and elect new leaders for the Cook County Board, vote out the Cook County President Todd Stroger and his sales tax, vote out the Chicago Alderman that raised taxes on SELLING your home in a down market, and vote out the legislators that allowed property taxes to spike in the face of decreasing home values and financial losses...
Yes, then we will get somewhere.

Bravo, Eric. Chicago is fast becoming one of the highest tax places I've ever been. Change will only come through political action at the County and City level.
