The Merry-Go-Round Continues: Who Replaces Quigley on the Cook County Board

I’m just back from the celebration at the Red Ivy, where Cook County Commissioner Mike Quigley claimed the Democratic nomination, and in effect won election, to replace Rahm Emanuel in Congress. As this race fades, Chicago political junkies shudder at the prospect of no elections for 11 months,; to bide the time, we turn to the question of who will replace Commissioner Quigley on the County Board. Quigley’s 10th District runs from Pratt to North, from the Lake to about 2 miles west, with a long stretch in West Rogers Park. A quick glance at the elected officials who could be candidates include State Rep. Harry Osterman, Aldermen Manny Flores and Tom Tunney, and Quigley’s vanquished foe, State Rep. Sara Feigenholtz. Cook County Clerk David Orr and Commisoner Board of Review (I don’t know what that does) Joseph Berrios, both of whom seem to have good gigs, also seem to  reside in the district. A wildcard could be Naisy Dolar, who came close to knocking off 50th ward Ald. Bernie Stone last year.
