Questions continue to abound as to who is running Cook County as news came out today that Board President John Stroger was readmitted to the hospital after suffering a stroke several weeks ago.
While Stroger's wife has called on him to retire, Stroger's son Todd is positioning to become the potential replacement for his father. With that revelation, various Cook County Democrats began rumblings that they were also interested in Stroger's job.
In the meantime, GOP Cook County Commissioner and Board Presidential candidate Tony Peraica raised questions today about who is currently in charge of Cook County government and expressed curiosity about who exactly he will be facing in the November 2006 election.
One board commissioner called today for a legal opinion as to the Board's presidency succession protocol.
It's a fair question. Just who is in charge?
