Dan Patlak was sworn in to 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 will run for election again in 2016. Patlak is fulfilling his pledge to work as the first ever full-time commissioner at the Board.
“Tax Accountability is pleased to endorse Dan Patlak, the current 1st District Commissioner of the Cook County Board of Review, in the March 15, 2016 Illinois primary. Dan has pledged to support economic freedom by working to decrease the overall tax burden of taxpayers. Dan’s record since taking office in 2010 has proven that he is one of the only elected officials in Chicago who is truly a defender of taxpayers. Not only has Dan’s time in elected office proven his tax-fighting credentials, but Dan was a volunteer coordinator for Citizens Against Government Waste back in 1992, drawing attention to wasteful government spending of tax dollars by organizing “Taxpayer Action Day Rallies” at the Kluczynski Federal Building and Daley Plaza. I urge voters to support Commissioner Patlak’s candidacy and help keep a tax fighter at the Cook County Board of Review.”
