Community conversations: The 2017 Cook County tax survey

This past September a property tax survey was compiled and distributed by a group of local residents formed under the name ‘Concerned Citizens for an Affordable Cook County.’ The purpose of the survey was to gauge the level of confidence Cook County property taxpayers have in decisions being made by local government officials.

Since its distribution, there have been varying opinions with regard to the survey. Some are publicly supporting the findings and mission of the Concerned Citizens group, while others have questioned the intent of the survey or were unclear as to who was behind its distribution.

In this WTIP Community Conversation, Host Joe Friedrichs speaks with Garry Gamble and Tom Bradovich, both of whom were instrumental in creating the local property tax survey
