Cook County Commissioner Tony Peraica (R-16) is seeking re-election in 2010.

Commissioner Tony Peraica (R-16) has long been an outspoken advocate for reform and tax relief in Cook County.  Born in Croatia in 1957, he was orphaned at the age of 11 and came to the United States two years later.  After attending college, he was elected to the Cook County Board of Commissioners in 2002 as a Republican.  In 2006, he experienced a narrow defeat to Todd Stroger in his run for Board President.

Peraica received his B.A. from the University of Chicago and went on to earn his law degree from the John Marshall Law School.  He has been a practicing attorney since 1984.
