Cook County employee Diahann Goode ran unopposed for her bid for Cook County Pension Fund Trustee and will serve another three-year term. Her re-election to the pension board will continue to strengthen representation for Cook County workers and Local 700 members. Goode was first elected as the Employee Trustee to the Cook County Pension Board in 2012.
“I am excited to have the another opportunity to serve on the Cook County Pension Board,” said Goode. “My focus in this position is to continue to stand up for my fellow Cook County employees and help protect their retirement and annuity benefits.”
Goode has worked in the Sheriff’s Department for 21 years and has been active with the Teamsters for many years, serving on the Executive Board of the Joint Council 25 Women’s Committee and the Chicago Chapter of the Teamsters National Black Caucus.
“We are proud to have Diahann Goode representing the retirement interests of county workers,” said Becky Strzechowski, Local 700 President. “Her knowledge and experience will continue to bring a great level of expertise to the pension board.”
