The Will County Board made history on Monday when it unanimously elected the Rev. Herb Brooks Jr. as its first black leader.
“It makes me proud not only to represent my party, but all the ethnic groups across Will County,” the Joliet Democrat said after the county board’s reorganization meeting. “More importantly though, it’s important that government recognize that it doesn’t matter what your race, creed or color is. What’s important is the job that’s at stake.”

The field to fill the U.S. House seat vacated by Jesse Jackson Jr. expanded Sunday as former Illinois state Rep. Robin Kelly announced she is running for the 2nd Congressional District office.
Kelly, who was appointed chief administrative officer for Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle in 2011, was chief of staff to former state Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias and ran unsuccessfully to replace him when he ran unsuccessfully for the U.S. Senate. She is a former state representative from Matteson, which is in the 2nd District.
