NORTHFIELD GOP ENDORSES PATLAK FOR COOK COUNTY FIRST DISTRICT BOARD OF REVIEW

 

Glenview, IL --- Resident of Wheeling Dan Patlak today received the endorsement of Northfield Township Republican Organization.

“Patlak’s reasons for running for re-election—that center around his professional qualifications, desire to continue safeguarding the appeal process against partisan abuse, as well as bringing balance to a Board dominated by Democrats-- align with what the residents in Northfield, Glenview, Deerfield, Prospect Heights, Des Plaines and Wilmette want,” committeeman T.J. Brown said. “I can think of no other candidate more qualified to continue the work Dan Patlak has done to create a more transparent and efficient tax system, than Dan himself.”

Patlak remarked, “As a professional trained in property valuation and as a local Township Assessor familiar with the County tax system, I will be in a position to ward off any attempts by insiders to abuse the system for personal or political gain. Under my leadership, taxpayers who make a convincing case for assessment reduction will receive the tax relief to which they are entitled. By the same token, politically connected property owners will receive no special consideration.”

Dan Patlak was sworn into a two-year term as a Commissioner of the Cook County Board of Review on December 6, 2010. Patlak’s defeat of the incumbent commissioner was the first time a Republican defeated a sitting Cook County level Democrat in fifteen years.  He was re-elected in 2012 and again in 2016, and is running for election in 2020. Patlak is fulfilling his pledge to work as the first-ever full-time commissioner at the Board.
