Berrios agrees on proposed reforms for County

Posted by Admin On April - 21 - 2010

Joe Berrios, candidate for Cook County assessor, said he agrees with proposed reform legislation for County that was announced today.

In a statement, Berrios said: “Earlier today, three individuals proposed reforms which would prohibit any Cook County public official from lobbying any unit of government on behalf of an entity other than the county. 

“I couldn’t agree more. Our current assessor, Jim Houlihan, lobbied for three years as an elected official.  

“I said last August during the Cook County Democratic Party slating process that I would no longer work as a lobbyist as soon as I take office. I committed back then that I would stop, and if I need to reiterate that promise to Roger Keats, Dick Simpson, and Andy Shaw, I will.  

“Being Cook County assessor is a full-time job. I want the people of Cook County to be comfortable knowing that I will be concentrating solely on the job at hand - and that is making sure their properties are fairly assessed throughout Cook County.”
