Special to suffredin.org

As the new Cook County and Forest Preserve District of Cook County Board of Commissioners are sworn in today, December 3, 2018, I want to announce new staff members and work assignments.

Joining us will be Mary Rita Luecke, an experienced lawyer who will work in the County Building Office with Brian Miller and will be responsible for assisting in developing public policy initiatives, drafting legislation and analyzing legislation.

Mary Rita Luecke brings extensive experience as a civil rights attorney and advocate for the disabled. Mary Rita is also the former president of the Evanston/Skokie School District 65 Board of Education. Since 1988, Mary Rita has been an adjunct professor at the Depaul University College of Law teaching a wide array of subjects including evidence, legal research and writing and trial advocacy. She was also a candidate for the Illinois House of Representatives. Mary Rita has lived in Skokie for more than thirty years with her husband Michael Gelder and has two adult children.

Also joining us will be Cicely Fleming, an experienced community advocate who will work in the Evanston office with Michelle Jordan and will be responsible for assisting in community outreach throughout the 13th District. Together, Michelle and Cicely will manage our Real Estate Tax Appeals seminars and taxpayer assistance, Health Care Task Force and Forest Preserve Task Force and other constituent services.

Cicely Fleming is an experienced and resourceful community advocate with a record of community involvement and conflict resolution. Cicely builds cohesion among community groups and members to find creative and productive solutions for issues with city ordinances and school district policies. She holds a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from Depaul University, with academic and personal interests in policy development & analysis; asset-based community development; voter engagement & mobilization; and racial equity. An Evanston native, Cicely enjoys raising her three children here along with her husband Andrew.
