Kevin B. Morrison
Kevin is proud to be serving his first term as Cook County Commissioner in the 15th District. In November 2018, Kevin made history by becoming the first openly LGBTQ Cook County Commissioner, at 28 years old the youngest in history, and the first Democrat to represent the District. This race was a major upset in Illinois, as Kevin beat the Chairman of the Illinois Republican Party.
Kevin's priorities include improving access to critical healthcare services, especially in the realm of mental health services, supporting small business development, and pushing for a more fair and transparent home assessment process. As a member of the LGBTQ community, he has already taken steps in expanding equity for the most disproportionately impacted and marginalized communities. Kevin currently sits as Chairman of Cook County’s Technology and Innovation Committee, and the Cook County Forest Preserve District Zoological Committee.
