Cook County announces effort to combat expected wave of evictions, foreclosures

“A wave is on the horizon here in Cook County and across the country,” Preckwinkle said, and “the heaviest burden will fall on the most vulnerable among us, Black and Brown residents. This is unacceptable.” 

Along with representatives of the Cook County Board, Chicago City Hall and the Circuit Court of Cook County, Preckwinkle unveiled an initiative called Cook County Legal Aid for Housing and Debt, or CLAAHD, a county-wide effort to help people deal with eviction, foreclosure, tax debt and property deed issues. 

Its initial funding is $1 million from the county’s share of CARES Act funding, but Preckwinkle said she expects the programs to last well beyond the use of that money and called on Congress to provide more aid. 

The aim is to prevent widespread displacement from housing due to “a crisis that none of us expected,” said Alma Anya, commissioner of Cook County’s Seventh District, on

Tech icon criticizes San Francisco, announces move to Florida: ‘Impossible to stay here’

Bay Area tech icon Keith Rabois announced he’s leaving San Francisco permanently — and he is criticizing the city on his way out.

Rabois, an early executive at PayPal, Square, LinkedIn and more, told Fortune he is “moving imminently” because he’s finding it “impossible to stay” in San Francisco. After living in the Bay Area for 20 years, he said he plans on moving to Florida.

“I think San Francisco is just so massively improperly run and managed that it’s impossible to stay here,” Rabois told Fortune. He told the publication other friends in his peer group have done the same, and a look at his Twitter account shows multiple tweets about the so-called San Francisco exodus.

Rabois is a legend in Silicon Valley as an investor and a tech exec. He rose to prominence as part of the PayPal Mafia,
