CHICAGO — Cook County Circuit Court Clerk Dorothy Brown said she won’t be running for reelection.
She told Politico it’s time to apply her financial, technology and legal skills in the “for-profit” space.
Brown is stepping down after 20 years in office, and will be eligible for a full pension.
The FBI had investigated her office over pay-to-play allegations, but no charges have ever been filed.
She ran for Mayor of Chicago earlier this year, but was knocked off the ballot due to a petition challenge.
