Suffredin Creates Hotline to Unfair Report Service Cuts

Wednesday, March 09, 2005
Special to suffredin.org

Chicago, IL. With the recent adoption of Cook County's 2005 Fiscal Year Budget, a budget in which there will be no new taxes for the first time in 11 years, the Cook County tradition of over-taxation and wasteful spending has finally been broken.

Commissioner Larry Suffredin is pleased that President Stroger recently announced that he would not veto any budget amendments and that there will be no service cuts based on the tax-free budget that was passed.

To ensure that the general public is protected from any unfair cuts to Cook County services, Commissioner Suffredin has established a hotline for citizens and County employees to report any interruption in County services. To make a report, citizens and employees are encouraged to make an anonymous phone call to 847-491-0317. Any information provided to the hotline will be held in the strictest confidence.

"My efforts, along with fellow Commissioners Claypool, Peraica and Quigley, paid off as we convinced a majority of the Board to cut wasteful spending and use thoughtful planning to protect the public's rights to an efficient and fair government. Now, I want to ensure that the citizens of Cook County are protected from cuts that would jeopardize needed county services and I strongly encourage anyone who witnesses any interruption to county services or service employment jobs to call the hotline," stated Commissioner Suffredin.

The hotline is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

HOTLINE NUMBER:  847-491-0317
