To engage the public on matters critical to reform, Reform for Illinois hosts regular educational forums open to anyone. The forums focus on timely, relevant topics and often feature expert panels, key policymakers and candidates.
What happens at the Cook County Assessor’s office affects the bank accounts of millions of Illinoisans. It also affects our communities, as inequitable property tax burdens can lower homeownership rates in vulnerable neighborhoods, depress the creation of generational wealth, and worsen segregation.
On Wednesday, April 6 at 6PM, join Reform for Illinois’ Alisa Kaplan for a conversation with Cook County Assessor Fritz Kaegi about the challenges and controversies facing his office, including the fallout from the tenure of his predecessor, Joe Berrios; the difficulties of assessing properties during COVID; criticisms of how the office has balanced commercial and residential assessments; and the role the assessor can play in creating a more equitable Cook County.
Register now to attend our Virtual Town Hall and submit your own questions. This event will be conducted via Zoom.
MWRD Commissioner Kari Steele, who is challenging Assessor Kaegi in the June primary, did not respond to our invitation to participate in this Town Hall.
