Our guest is Ald. Toni Preckwinkle, who is the Democratic committeeman as well as four-term alderman of the South Side's 4th Ward. She seeks her party's nomination for Cook County Board president. Preckwinkle has been honored by the Independent Voters of Illinois-Independent Precinct Organization and is considered a reformer and independent Democrat.

We'll ask her why she's running, her platform, her strategy for victory, her view of the county's controversial sales tax hike and other county issues, and why she thinks her former aldermanic colleague, Todd Stroger, doesn't deserve a second term as board president.
