Selfless acts by a sister and brother help Willow School students

Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle issued a veto Tuesday striking down the Cook County Board resolution that would provide addresses of COVID-19 positive patients to suburban Cook County first responders. 

The information would be from the Cook County Department of Public Health (CCDPH) with jurisdiction over 127 municipalities and 2.5 million residents. 

It was the first veto action taken by Preckwinkle in her tenure as Cook County Board president dating back to 2010.
