Secretary of State Jesse White Endorses Democratic Nominee Kevin B. Morrison
08/01/2018Leading Democrat and African American leader Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White announced that he is throwing his full support to Democratic nominee for Cook County Commissioner Kevin B. Morrison, who is running against the chair of the Illinois Republican Party 15th District Cook County Commissioner Tim Schneider.
“I am pleased to have the opportunity to support a young man with such a strong vision for Cook County. I am excited to endorse Kevin Morrison, who I know will bring enthusiasm, knowledge and a commitment to public service to the 15th district,” stated Secretary of State Jesse White.
Kevin B. Morrison will make history as the first openly LGBTQ person to serve on the Cook County board. He is running against the embattled chair of the Illinois Republican Party 15th District Cook County Commissioner Tim Schneider. Schneider is an ally of President Trump and Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner, who seek to destroy working families and the middle-class in favor of the 1%. His numerous conflicts of interests have put him at odds and out of touch with the 15th district.
"Secretary White has been a trailblazer in Illinois by always standing up for LGBTQ and women’s issues before they were popular. His commitment to public service and dedication to serving our middle-class communities by making government more efficient has been my inspiration as I seek the Cook County Commissioner seat,” said Kevin B. Morrison.
