Quigley announces for County Board President
Mike Quigley is announcing his campaign for President in the Hotel Allegro right now. He is first out of the gate and campaigning on a message of real change and against a tired, insiders-only way of governing. The challenge will be convincing the base that efficiency and no new taxes means the mission of the county is enhanced not hurt. It is clearly true, but some voters need to be convinced. This is an exciting campaign. Full disclosure: I'm on the Board of Young Chicago Lakefront which is supporting the Quigley campaign.
