Tom Dart is the next Sheriff of Cook County, Illinois. I enjoyed my conversation with him today and I wished him the best of luck in his new job. Tom Dart is a very intelligent and brilliant person. He is a “Hands on” type of leader, and his style of management will be tested soon. Tom is taking on a very difficult position and I had fun talking about his nomination that made the papers. Of course, I cannot go into details of our conversation, but the entire class was impressed with him. Tom Dart won the election with 78% of the vote. He ran against Peter Garza who was featured on the web site before. The insider politics Tom talked about is priceless.
