Cook County Commissioner[edit]

As a commissioner, Sims is Chairperson of the Construction, Oak Forest Hospital and Tax Delinquency Committees. Additionally, she is a member of the Provident Hospital, Environmental Control, Family Court and Juvenile Detention Center, Education, Labor, Legislation and Intergovernmental Relations, Health and Hospitals, Finance, Zoning and Buildings, and Roads and Bridges.

As Cook County Board Commissioner, Sims voted to uphold a historic 2008 Cook County sales tax increase, remaining the highest in the nation. As a result the Chicago Tribune has encouraged voters to vote against her in the 2010 elections.
