On Sunday, Clerk of the Court of Cook County Dorothy Brown made her official mayoral bid announcement to a packed room of supporters. Held at the Chicago Hilton and Towers, the five-term Cook County public official came prepared to address attendees on why she should be the next City of Chicago mayor.
Opening up the program, leading up to Brown’s announcement was a line-up of speakers including community leaders and colleagues. Several members of the media asked questions ranging from a pending federal corruption investigation, Cook County Democratic party support, entrepreneurial business support to dealing with motivating a better Black voter turnout. In her signature Delta red, she stood firm on allowing the residents of the city to determine her fate and to judge her long-term record on overseeing one of the country’s largest county holder of legal records and documents. Without the endorsement of the Cook County Democratic Party, Brown won overwhelmingly by 79 percent in the last election.
