Standing against privatization

Leslie Hairston was born and raised in Hyde Park and was a former Assistant Attorney General for the State of Illinois.[1]

She is a close ally of Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle[2], where the bulk of her campaign contributions come from, and is also heavily supported by union donations, especially from the SEIU, CTU, and AFSCME.[3] She is a member of the Progressive Caucus and was one of only five alderman to oppose the privatization of parking meters.[4]
