    She said that while there's been some successes, many challenges lie ahead.

    In advance of the milestone, Preckwinkle sat down to a series of interviews with the Chicago Sun-Times

    In them, she talks about the difference between governing a single city ward and the entire county, what she deems as her greatest accomplishment in her short time in office, her personal leadership style and some plans for the future.
