Definitely worth a read, even though (or because) you might not like what you hear.

For background reading on the relationship between the assessor's office, Michael Madigan, and property taxes , I assembled a buffet of Ben Joravsky's reporting centering around the 7% tax cap; Eric Zorn has a good FAQ on the subject.

What happened to Andrea Raila, the tax geek and former Quinn aide? She dropped out to escape a drawn-out, expensive signature challenge.

PS a compelling reason to vote for Joe Berrios: dude will put in an 8 hour day, you bet.
