The Stroger Legacy And Cook County

In 2010, as public support of county government waned, then-Cook County Board President Todd Stroger lost the Democratic primary to Toni Preckwinkle. Now, years later, Stroger is running for public office again and is rejoining the debate on county and city government. On this edition of Against the Current, Dan Proft asks Stroger what he thinks his legacy is, and what he wants to see from Cook County and Chicago moving forward. Proft and Stroger discuss and debate pensions, patronage and the best ways to provide jobs and opportunity for Cook County residents, as well as a range of other topics, in one of the most extensive interviews Stroger has done since leaving his post as Cook County Board President.
