Cook County Treasurer Maria Pappas was lauded by county commissioners during a Board of Commissioners Finance Committee meeting on her office’s budget Oct. 25, nearly one week after her office released a study which showed hedge funds, private equity firms and similar entities had taken advantage of a state property tax law loophole they helped craft to profit off administrative mistakes, with the effects largely felt by communities of color.
The treasurer said more studies were on the way.
