From the campaign for Morrison for Cook County Board of Review…
Cook County, IL, November 29, 2011 – Republican businessman Sean M. Morrison has formally filed his petitions to run for Cook County Board of Review First District opposing incumbent Dan Patlak. Morrison filed Monday morning with more than 7000 petition signatures – thousands more signatures than were required. Morrison was recently awarded the LEADS 2011 Humanitarian Award for his extraordinary work in helping solve missing persons and exploited children’s cases over the years.
“It’s time for Cook County homeowners to put their foot down on the property tax increases,” said Morrison. He argues that Commissioners have the ability to lobby the Illinois General Assembly and be a force for change.
As a businessman, Morrison hopes to implement common business sense and fairness at the Cook County Board of Review. Morrison says he will implement an entirely new program at the Board of Review that will ensure fair and uniform property taxes. His program includes the use of modern technology that mirrors unemployment hearings before the Illinois Department of Employment Security. The Illinois Department of Employment Security has primarily conducted hearings via telephone for the last eighteen years.
Self-made businessman, Sean Morrison, 44, is the President and Founder of Morrison Security, Inc. headquartered in Alsip, Illinois. Morrison Security has more than 1,000 employees nationwide. Morrison’s extensive pro bono work includes work with LEADS Organization and the Cook County Human Trafficking Task Force. He lives with his wife, Laura, and two children in Palos Park.
