Peggy R. Cook (July 8, 1939 – December 24, 2011[3]) was a politician in Flint, Michigan.

Cook was a community organizer on the East side of Flint in its 4th Ward, where she involved in neighborhood associations and starting neighborhood foot patrol.[2]

In 1991, Cook was elected to the Flint City Council. She continue to get reelected and served until July 2003. At that time, Flint Mayor Don Wiliamson appointed Cook as City Administrator.[1] In 2007, Cook was on extended sick leave for six months while a councilman, Scott Kincaid, question whether or not she had enough sick time accumulated. The Flint City Benefit Manager indicated that a city ordinance allows for extended sick pay at 75% pay. Her husband Bob was also serving as the City's director of parks and recreation.[4]

In December 2007, Cook was replaced as Flint City Administrator,[5] only to return in March 2008 as governmental operations director replacing former State Senator Joe Conroy[6] until Williamson resigned from office of the Mayor in 2009.[1]

On December 24, 2011, Cook died at Genesys Regional Medical Center, Grand Blanc Twp.[1] and was buried in Alabama.[3]
