Challenger Kaegi Lauds Cook Cty Board’s demand that Berrios Explain Property Assessment Inequities

Press Release ( - CHICAGO - Jul 19, 2017 - Fritz Kaegi, Democratic candidate for Cook County Assessor, “I commend the Cook County Commissioners’ commitment to finding out the truth about the inequities of the assessment system. All residents of Cook County deserve a fair, transparent, and ethical assessment process. Sadly, Assessor Berrios failed to explain how he conducts assessments and why they are more regressive than industry norms. Why can’t the Assessor just tell us how property is assessed?”

Kaegi continued “Taking contributions from lawyers who come to the office to appeal taxes creates a system that is unfair at best and corrupt at worst. Again today Berrios said he will continue to take money from these attorneys. I won’t.”

Lastly, Berrios offered no solutions for how to make the system less regressive and more fair. He did not explain how he would make the assessments fair.

Cook County Commissioners Jesus “Chuy” Garcia, John Daley, Peter Silvestri and Larry Suffredin called on Berrios to appear before the County Board on July 18 to explain the damage the present property tax assessment system, under Berrios’ leadership, is doing to communities across Cook County.
