A Conversation with Todd Stroger
Earlier this year Cook County Board President Todd Stroger submitted a
budget proposal that calls for across the board cuts in county services.
The goal was to eliminate a nearly $500 million budget gap.
plan has been harshly criticized by the public, county workers and
county commissioners. The County Board now has less than three weeks to
approve its nearly $3 billion dollar budget.
Melba Lara talked with Board President Todd Stroger earlier today. He says he stands by the cuts he's recommended.
