"Kevin is a tireless advocate who will bring a new perspective to the Cook County Board," said Congresswoman Schakowsky. "Kevin has worked tirelessly to make our community stronger and our schools more inclusive and if elected, Kevin will make history as the first openly LGBTQ person to serve on our Cook County board.
