Cook County Treasurer's Office - 5/6/2020
In an opinion piece posted on Newsmax.com, a University of Houston professor recalls an interview with Treasurer Maria Pappas more than seven years ago.
In that 2012 interview for Forbes, Pappas said, "Homeowners might be able to give their homes to their children, but that future generation won't be able to afford to keep them because of the property taxes, which have doubled over a 10-year period."
The author, Larry Bell, cites statistics from the Treasurer's Debt Disclosure in 2012.
