Q&A: Fritz Kaegi On What He'll Face as Cook County Assessor

I grew up at 53rd and Greenwood; a block away from Toni Preckwinkle.… She knew my dad because she’d see him walking by all the time. And then when I introduced myself when I was starting this race, she said, “I can’t meet with you, I’m committed to meeting with Joe.” She was very polite about that.

    Q&A: Fritz Kaegi On What He'll Face as Cook County Assessor
    In what other city would the race for county assessor be as dramatic, as cut-throat-the subject of so many hyperventilating endorsements-as the race between Joe Berrios, incumbent machine-made Cook County assessor, and Fritz Kaegi, reformer and Hyde Park-reared professor's kid? We haven't heard much from Kaegi since his big victory-49 percent to 34 percent-over Berrios.
