A Few Minutes With Toni Preckwinkle
Toni Preckwinkle, Cook County
President Toni Preckwinkle recently introduced her FY2018 executive budget recommendation. Last week, commissioners voted to repeal the Sweetened Beverage Tax that would have provided $200M in the next fiscal year. A balanced budget must be passed by Dec. 1 and President Preckwinkle has committed to working with separately electeds and commissioners, as well as hearing from the public, on how to close this gap. Those efforts start immediately and will be ongoing until a balanced budget it approved by a majority of the Board.
