A group of Democratic Committeemen convene Thursday morning to hear pitches from hopefuls interested in becoming the next commissioner of Cook County’s 2nd District. Ald. Michael Scott (24), a mentee of the late Comm. Robert Steele (D-2) will chair the selection committee of 19 members, each with a weighted vote based on vote totals from Steele’s 2014 election. With a scant 15% of the weighted vote, the largest share of the bunch, Ald. Scott will have to cobble together a coalition of South and West Siders to agree on a candidate–some of whom are gunning for the job themselves or for family.
