Amid calls for fairness, justice and equity, across society, long-sought fairness and equity is arriving for many on Cook County property taxes.
But these are also the times of the Covid-19 recession. The real estate market, buffeted by reduced revenue and the need to reduce operating costs, sees higher property taxes, however equitable.
The LAI Ely Chapter is excited to welcome an expert panel to discuss historical context and the current efforts to deliver property tax equity.
Panelists include Cook County Assessor Fritz Kaegi and Bob Orenstein, Artist in Residence at the Samuel DuBois Cook Center on Social Equity at Duke University and Director of Telling Stories of Social Injustice Working Group.
