(Chicago Sun Times) — She is seeking the help of the very people she may fire. But Cook County Board President-elect Toni Preckwinkle said she needs the help of outgoing board President Todd Stroger’s administration as she prepares to take the reins of the $3 billion government next month. So she emailed and faxed letters seeking help to some 50 Stroger-appointed cabinet members and other county bosses — some of whom Preckwinkle has said will likely get a pink slip once she takes office. “I am writing to encourage your assistance in providing necessary information and taking meetings as those requests are made,” Preckwinkle wrote in a note sent Monday to everyone from the county Chief Financial Officer Jaye Morgan Williams to Director of Facilities Management Jim D’Amico.
