Cook County Clerk David Orr announced Tuesday he will run for a seventh term as County Clerk in November 2014. "I am proud of my accomplishments as County Clerk," Orr said. "It's been an exciting time to work in elections and there is plenty more work to do." Orr was first elected clerk in 1990. Prior, Orr was a progressive alderman representing the 49th Ward in Chicago, and when Harold Washington was re-elected mayor in 1987, Orr became his vice mayor. After Washington's death later that year, Orr served as mayor during a tumultuous transition for the city. During his career as a public official, Orr has continued to teach, recently teaching a course in Urban Studies at DePaul University. He is now affiliated with the University of Chicago's Harris School of Public Policy.
