Cook County is responsible for providing essential services in the areas of public safety, public health, the court system, elections, tax assessment and appeals, the recording of deeds, and the management of 68,000 acres of forest preserves.
As an independent member of the Board, I have worked hard to combine fiscal responsibility with social awareness. Identified by the press as a reform-minded commissioner, I appreciate the strong bi-partisan support I receive from the members of the many communities across our district, which includes: portions of the far northwest side of the City of Chicago, the City of Park Ridge, the Villages of River Forest, Elmwood Park, Harwood Heights, Mount Prospect, Norridge, River Grove, Rosemont, and portions of Arlington Heights, Melrose Park, Morton Grove, Niles, Prospect Heights, Schiller Park and unincorporated Norwood Park, Maine and Wheeling Townships.
To all constituents of the 9th District, please know that my door is always open.
If you have any questions or concerns, or if you would like additional information, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you for visiting our website.
Peter N. Silvestri
Cook County Commissioner, 9th District
