Bloomberg pops for $1M to push Preckwinkle's soda tax
from Crain's Chicago Business
Wealthy former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg again is investing a chunk of his fortune in a hot Chicago-area issue — this time, a proposed tax on soda pop and other sugary drinks in Cook County. Bloomberg today is launching a $1 million TV ad blitz in the Chicago media market on behalf of the tax, which Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle says is needed to avoid layoffs of law enforcement personnel and others in county government.
