Cook County Commissioner Larry Suffredin says he will not run for county board president. Suffredin announced Monday that he will seek re-election for his 13th District seat.

That seat represents the northern suburbs along the lakefront and Rogers and West Rogers Park in Chicago.

In a statement on his Web site, Suffredin says he will continue to push to repeal the county's penny-on-the-dollar sales tax hike.
