Preckwinkle set for swearing in as co. board prez

Toni Preckwinkle will be sworn in Monday as the new president of the Cook County Board-- and she'll have several problems to deal with.

Preckwinkle inherits a $487 million budget gap and a severe public image problem.

She's also facing an unexpected issue: Preckwinkle claims that outgoing board president Todd Stroger is not making the transition easy.

Preckwinkle says, when her staffers requested information, they got mounds of unorganized or incomplete paper instead.
