Erase the Recorder

Cook County Considers Merging Recorder and Clerk's Offices.

Joe Tirio - Wednesday, June 29, 2016

Cook County's finance board will meet today to discuss whether the people of that county will have an option on the November ballot to merge the Recorder and Clerk's office. While they have some stronger language to describe their Recorder's office, the core sentiment is the same, we must seize any opportunity to reduce government size and cost.

 

From the Chicago Tribune:

"If approved by voters, the recorder's office would be phased out by the end of 2020 for annual savings to taxpayers of about $800,000.

That's not big money to county politicians. But every gesture toward saving rather than taxing helps people who pay thousands in property and sales taxes to a government designed for the 1800s."

The Plan

Joe Tirio - Monday, February 29, 2016

Some say it can't be done, others say it shouldn't be done. Answers to those points as well as why I am the right person to do it are included in the document below.

 

"The Plan" includes background on me, why I am running and a high-level view of my plan and platform. It also includes a comparison of myself and my opponents as well as the "interesting" places they get their campaign funds.

 

You also get a look at documents I requested via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request that gives insight into the composition and compensation of those in the office. I've constructed an organizational chart from that data to provide a visual representation of the office as it stood in September of 2015.
