Cook County Assessor Fritz Kaegi’s countywide Listening Tour will make its final stop on Monday, June 24th from 6p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Arturo Velasquez Institute located at 2800 S. Western in Chicago. The tour is a part of a commitment to transparency in the administration of the office. In addition to hearing directly from Assessor Kaegi about his work, attendees can ask questions and get a progress report about the new Assessor’s efforts to create more accurate and fair assessments. Each stop on the listening tour has been co-sponsored by a commissioner and this event will be co-sponsored by Cook County Commissioner Alma Anaya and moderated by Rosa Esquivel from the Pilsen Alliance. Spanish translation will be available. “I’m elected by the voters, by the taxpayers of Cook County,” said Assessor Kaegi. “We’re accountable to them. So we have a responsibility to demonstrate our accountability and give taxpayers an update on our efforts so far.” The Assessor has visited each of the 17 districts in the county at least once, presented an update on the office’s plans, and engaged in moderated “fireside chats” with community leaders. A question and answer session will follow.
