Now that Mike Quigley's heading to Washington to fill Rahm Emanuel's vacant Representative seat, there's an open spot at the Cook County Board of Commissioners. Committeemen from 11 wards will hold a closed door vote tomorrow to fill the spot. Both the Tribune and the Sun-Times endorse Quigley's chief of staff Kimberly Walz.
