WestSide Democracy For America (WDFA) has a mission of creating an independent progressive organization that will work to elect socially progressive ,fiscally responsible,and ethically committed Democrats or Independent to office at all levels of government, with the goal of increasing the progressive nature of government
Our organization is honored to endorse Fritz Kaegi’s campaign to become our next Cook County Assessor. We support Fritz because he brings a vision to restore fairness, integrity and honesty to the office as corruption, pay-to-play politics and nepotism continue to cloud the current property tax assessment system.
For too long, minority communities have suffered under a property tax assessment system that caters to the wealthy and well-connected while leaving the working class to take on an unfair property tax burden. Under Assessor Berrios, we have seen unprecedented levels of systemic economic devastation on the west side. It’s time for a change.
Our organization is committed to building the progressive movement here in Cook County by encouraging and supporting the development of more grassroots leaders, so it’s imperative to elect a new leader who will uphold the trust of the residents. We need progressive leadership in the office and Fritz Kaegi represents the kind of leader that we need now.
