Chicago-area power brokers are poised on Wednesday to take two symbolic but potentially meaningful votes, setting up a test of the Cook County Democratic Party’s influence.
The party’s Central Committee is set to meet virtually at 5 p.m. Wednesday to vote on a resolution in support of a long-fought state bill (HB2908) that would transition the mayoral-appointed Chicago Public Schools Board of Education into a fully elected body. They will also vote on whether to publicly admonish Ald. Brendan Reilly (42) for endorsing a Republican in a competitive partisan race last year.
