Daily Herald fact checks candidates
Thursday, Sep 28, 2006
The Daily Herald looks beyond the hot-button “old guard” patronage issues today and examines whether Todd Stroger and Tony Peraica are making valid claims. Here are two examples. There are more. Read the whole thing.
Todd Stroger claimed that â€œhomeowners are going to pay higher taxesâ€ if Tony Peraica is elected. It seemed a strange claim, given that Peraica, as a county commissioner, was at the forefront of beating back tax hike attempts by Todd Strogerâ€™s father, John H. Stroger, when he was president.
This is very good reporting, but nothing like it is being done by anyone else in the county board president’s race.
