Todd Stroger taking medical leave

(Crain’s) — Cook County Board President Todd Stroger will take a leave of up to three weeks for what is being described only as a routine medical procedure, his office announced Monday.
“It’s a procedure (Mr. Stroger) has wanted to do for a while,” said his communications director, Andrew Garner. “He will be in regular contact with the office. Barring the unexpected, he’ll be back in the saddle soon.”
The procedure occurred Monday. Aides declined to say anything more about the medical condition or to disclose what hospital is treating Mr. Stroger, citing privacy reasons.
During last year’s campaign, Mr. Stroger told reporters that he one day hoped to replace a knee he blew out playing basketball several years ago, but it is not known if that’s the procedure involved in his absence.
Cook County Commissioner Tony Peraica, who narrowly lost to Mr. Stroger in last November's election, had some criticism Monday as to how the medical matter is being handled.
While Mr. Stroger is entitled to some privacy, "if this procedure indeed was preplanned, as his people say, we should have been notified" earlier, Mr. Peraica said.
Mr. Stroger’s father, John, suffered a stroke last year shortly before running for a new term as board president in the Democratic primary. The handling of that news set off a major political squabble, with charges that the senior Mr. Stroger’s family and allies were trying to cover up the seriousness of his illness.
John Stroger was renominated, but stepped down last summer and was replaced on the Democratic ticket by Todd Stroger.
