Local dealer wins GOP primary in race for Cook County board

November 24, 2010
Elizabeth Ann Doody Gorman, principal of Dodge of Midlothian, won a March 19 Republican primary contest for a seat on the Cook County board of commissioners. It was Gorman's first bid for elective office. Gorman gained 44 percent of the vote for a plurality win, besting her closest competitor by 624 votes out of more than 22,000 ballots cast. She faces a November contest against Democrat Candice Marie Morrison, who ran unopposed in the GOP-leaning 17th District. Gorman and her husband Gerald purchased Dodge of Midlothian in 2000. She had previous dealership holdings dating to 1990.
