He talks about that in Part 4 of our 4-part interview ...
Patlak then reviews some of the more important Cook County-based 2010 races in which Cook County GOPers were victorious.
How hopeful are you that the new Cook County Republican chairman will be able to lead this important organization to winning Republican seats in Illinois?
IR: What do you know about Democrat that has filed to run for the Cook County BOR District 1 slot?

IR: And you've also conducted seminars about property tax appeals since taking office in January 2011 ...
IR: Any other promises you'd like to address?
IR: With the foreclosure rate in both residential and business properties, property owners are frustrated and you must see it in your interaction with those appealing to get tax breaks ...
IR: Any other points you'd like to make before we conclude this interview?
