    Tara Stamps, an activist and Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) employee, was sworn in Tuesday night as the next Cook County commissioner for District 1 after winning the unanimous vote of local county Democratic committeepersons. 

    Stamps is succeeding Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson, who represented the district for just over one term. She has some of the same attributes as Johnson, in that she extolls progressive politics, brings an organizing and teaching background to the role and has ties to the CTU.
