The other big local political news is the impending return of Paul Vallas to Chicago. News reports say he wants to run the County Board.
After screwing the CPS, even pissing off his patron The Mayor, he fled to Philadelphia. By all accounts, he made that struggling urban system even worse. Run out of Philly, he ended up in charge of the privatization of New Orleans public schools.
Now Typhoid Paul, switching to being a Republican, wants to do to Cook County government was he’s done to Chicago, Philly and NOLA schools.
Only Vallas could make a local hope for the victory of the corrupt present head of the Board, Todd Stroger.
