Meet Judy Arvey - the 14th district’s representative on the Cook County Commission on Women’s Issues! As a 35-year resident of Northbrook, Judy has been very involved in the community. After graduating from National Louis University, Judy went on to be a teacher at Skokie School District 68 for seven years. Judy continued her service to the community as an active member of District 30’s PTO, Glenbrook North Parents Association, Glenview North Booster Club, Northfield Township Democrats and Northbrook Civics Foundation.
Judy recently retired, though she stays busy helping a friend in the event planning business. She also currently serves as a Mission Brook Sanitary District trustee and is a member of Moms Demand Action.
In her free time, Judy enjoys reading, movies, traveling (especially to visit her son, Jason, in D.C. and her daughter, Allison, in Las Vegas!).
The Cook County Commission on Women's Issues was created in October 1995 and is composed of 21 women, including representatives of each of the 17 districts across Cook County. District representatives are appointed by each district's County Commissioner, and four at-large members are appointed by the County Board President.
The Commission advises the President and Board of Commissioners on issues of concern to women and girls, and develops policy and program recommendations on matters such as domestic violence, child care, economic equity, and health. The Commission works to elevate the status of women and girls of Cook County, improve the delivery of services to women and their families, and eliminate inequalities in laws, practices and conditions that impact Cook County women and girls.
