Hal Dardick

Hal Dardick has covered politics, government, budgets and taxes at Chicago City Hall and the Cook County Building for the Chicago Tribune since 2008. He got his start as a reporter in Chicago’s west suburbs in 1986, doing stints as a government, courts and crime reporter, small wire service chief, political columnist and freelance reporter before joining the Tribune full time in 2004. A former collegiate gymnast, he likes progressive rock, real jazz, good food and fine wine — and thinks politics is the great American sport.
