Like most voters in the County of Cook in Illinois, I have been appalled by the way Todd Stroger "inherited" the right to be our next County Board President by the Democratic Party machine. I have struggled with voting for Tony Peraica, his Republican Party opponent. It's not an easy fit. He's a conservative Republican. I consider myself a liberal Independent on social issues, but a fiscal conservative. I'm on opposite sides of the hot-button social issues with Peraica. But we seem to have one important belief in common: the idea that Cook County government needs to be turned upside down and given a good shaking.
