Quigley gonna run!
I almost missed it in today's Chicago Tribune. It was a mere photo caption in the Metro section — not front page material, I guess. But Cook County Commissioner Mike Quigley is going to run for County Board President. This means that should he run, current President John Stroger will have some competition in the primary. Quigley, if you don't know, has led a band of insurgent Democratic commissioners, who have fought Stroger's needless tax hikes and wasteful spending and who blame Stroger for gross mismanagement at the county's forest preserves.
