Toni Preckwinkle (D) - Incumbent
“We plan to launch a new program to abolish medical debt using ARPA funds. This program is the first of its kind and will partner with a qualified non-profit to purchase and retire up to $1 billion in debt of Cook County residents.”
Bob Fioretti (R)
"Preckwinkle led the vote to defund police, continues to minimize and denigrate law enforcement, and treats violent offenders as victims, while disregarding the well-being of law-abiding Cook County residents."
Thea Tsatsos (L)
“I am certainly not going to appeal for federal funds and try to appease county residents by offering a 'guaranteed income program.' Because I am not seeking to borrow from the future to bring value into The Now. Our system is already illiquid.”
