Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle today presented her Chief of Staff, G.A. Finch, with a resolution thanking him for his service to the County.
On November 1, Finch is leaving Cook County to rejoin his law firm, Hoogendoorn and Talbot, LLC.
Finch accepted the position, he said, because he thought he could make a difference while learning new skills to take back to the private sector.
Finch brought significant experience to the County, having served as a City of Chicago Deputy Planning Commissioner in Mayor Harold Washington’s administration and as the General Counsel for the Chicago Housing Authority. His combination of experience in the public and private sectors made him a valuable asset to the administration, where he played a key role in the President’s continued transformation of County government.
Most recently, Finch worked closely with the President and her team to help craft both County and Forest Preserve District budgets without tax, fine or fee increases.
“I’m grateful to G.A. for his service and dedication to Cook County,” President Preckwinkle said.
