In something of a surprise selection, it was former Chicago Park District official Bridget Gainer who was selected to replace Mike Quigley on the Cook County Board today. Quigley’s former chief of staff Kimberly Walz had been the favorite to take the spot, replacing her old boss, but in the end the committeemen selected Gainer. [Sun-Times]
