A Personal Note From Dan


It has been a long and harrowing campaign for the past three years starting in June 2009 when we made the decision to run for Commissioner of the Cook County Board of Review. We have gone through four contested elections, two primaries and two generals and prevailed each time.

Thank you for your help. Thank you for your financial support. Thank you for your encouragement. Thank you for your e-mails, Facebook Likes, yard sign placements, literature distribution, blog posts, letters to the editors, parade marching, endorsements, votes and everything else so many of you have done to help in this long and challenging journey.

Our campaign was often outspent but never outworked. We have triumphed over lies and distortions, bitterness and vilification.

In only two short years since we put our team in place at the Board we have made significant and substantial improvements at our office that have benefitted the public in real tangible ways. On November 6, we were blessed with four additional years to continue our mission of providing competence, professionalism and honesty to all Cook County residents who are affected by the work of our Board of Review.

We will make it a point to keep you abreast of our progress. So until the next time you receive a note from us, please know we will be working hard to continue earning your confidence, trust and support.

Best regards to you and your family,

Dan Patlak
Cook County Board of Review-1st District
