“This morning I had the opportunity of attending a
meeting hosted by Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle and
her executive staff to provide representatives of Cook County Clergy
with a briefing and update regarding matters at the Cook County
Morgue and Office of the Cook County Medial Examiner.
The President provided us with helpful facts and information, along

I am grateful for the President’s honesty and candor during our
