Thank you for endorsing Toni Preckwinkle for president of the Cook County Board and bringing her candidacy to your readers’ attention. [Our endorsements for county board, Our Views, Jan. 13]

Having worked with and followed her aldermanic career for more than 20 years, I can say enthusiastically and without reservation that she is an ethical, smart, savvy and pragmatic public servant who has spent her public life committed to positive change.

In more than 40 years of voting in Cook County, this is the best (and maybe first) opportunity I have had to elect a board president with the abilities and skills to bring governmental improvements to the residents of Cook County. Readers, please check out her record and spread the word to your friends. Let us not squander this priceless chance!
