Taking Names via POLITICO

August 26th, 2019

Greetings from POLITICO, where I write the daily Illinois Playbook. In case you don’t subscribe, I’m including some recent highlights here in the Taking Names blog, which still exists–even though I haven’t updated it in a long while.

IN HER FIRST 100 DAYS, Mayor Lori Lightfoot has accomplished a dizzying amount of reform in city government.

A new report details bullying and sexual harassment that’s gone on for YEARS in the state capital.

READERS SAW IT HERE FIRST: DOROTHY BROWN won’t seek re-election as clerk of the Circuit Court of Cook County.

A few familiar names are considering a run to replace Dorothy Brown. Can you say STROGER?

And a billionaire has helped break the caps in the race for Cook County State’s Attorney. Find out who here

Thanks for reading, and if you like what you see, consider subscribing to Playbook (see the skinny box at the top, right). It’s FREE.
