Berrios daughter gets $10K raise

May 23, 2011 2:21:37 PM PDT
Cook County Assessor Joe Berrios has given his daughter a promotion and $10,000-a-year raise.

Vanessa Berrios has worked in the assessor's office since 1999. Joe Berrios tells The Sun-Times the pay raise is justified since his daughter has taken on new responsibilities.

However, her promotion and pay raise comes as her father is requiring most workers in his county office to take 10 unpaid furlough days this year because of budget cuts.

Berrios has also hired two other members of his family.
