About this Office: The Clerk of the Circuit Court of Cook County is the keeper of the records of the court. The clerk is responsible for serving the court, the legal profession and the general public by recording court decisions and events; handling fines, bail bonds and other financial transactions; and supporting the court system with record storage, microfilming, automation and other services.
“The current state of the Clerk’s office is inexcusable. Taxpayers have been promised sweeping changes to the system for two decades. Millions of dollars later, the office is in worse shape than ever with Cook County lagging behind other court systems.”
“We cannot expect the current system to improve if we elect a machine politician, like those that have crippled so many other aspects of county government.”
