Cook County 100-day report card


On December 6, 2010 Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle was sworn into office.  A day later, she released her transition report, with 37 initiatives for transforming Cook County. Of these 37, we committed to making significant progress on 29 of them in our first 100 days. The report included ideas from residents and was guided by 80 civic leaders.

In our transition plan, we committed to lead by example by reguarly reporting on our progress. In this document, we have listed each of our commitments, goals and progress on these commitments. We invite you to see what we have done in the first 100 days and let us know your thoughts and ideas.
