Suffredin to air out proposed county ethics overhaul Monday ahead of potential April vote
More than a year after a proposed update to Cook County’s Code of Ethics emerged in a cloud of controversy, commissioners are preparing to adopt a version of the changes as soon as next month.
Cook County Comm. Larry Suffredin (D-13) is set to convene a hearing of the county Board of Commissioners’ Legislation and Intergovernmental Relations Committee at 1:30 p.m. Monday for a public hearing on his proposed suite of updates (20-4404) to the county’s ethics rules. The commissioner is inviting leaders from a panoply of good government watchdog groups, plus current and past members of the county’s Board of Ethics, to testify with their thoughts.
