Cook Co. Morgue may actual get an anatomic and forensic pathologist - Preckwinkle announced Tuesday she’s nominating Dr. Stephen J. Cina

Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle’s replacement for retiring Cook County Medical Examiner, Dr. Nancy Jones, will get a 30-percent pay raise and more staffing, officials said Tuesday.

Preckwinkle announced Tuesday she’s nominating Dr. Stephen J. Cina, the associate medical director of the University of Miami Tissue Bank and a board-certified anatomic and forensic pathologist with 20 years of forensic autopsy experience.

He’ll earn $300,000 — nearly $70,000 more than Jones, and get more staff. Some of the 90-plus positions are vacant, but he’s also looking to add extra employees get the job done, Preckwinkle told reporters.

“I think he’s asked for additional ones, and of course we will grant his request,” Preckwinkle told reporters. She didn’t know exactly how many new jobs would be added.

Earlier in the day, she sent out a statement praising her pick, noting: “Dr. Cina comes to us with outstanding credentials, not only as a leader in the medical examiner field, but as a distinguished medical researcher. His wide-ranging expertise and executive experience clearly show he’s capable of providing the highest level of leadership and direction that will reshape the Medical Examiner’s Office into a model facility. Along with my recent appointment of Daryl Jackson as executive director, I’m very confident the ME’s office will soon be in the hands of a highly skilled and experienced management team.”

Reached by phone, Dr. Cina, 46, told the Sun-Times Tuesday that he has “some big ideas, and I feel the county is supportive.”

Remember Freeman, the goon that worked in intake. He was a big 300 pound black slob with a lazy eye.

He liked to steal the moldy money from the corpses.

Paid lacky.

I Voted For Obama said...

Dr. Stephen J. Cina voted for Obama, then asked him if he realized that he had performed autopsies on people with the same name as the voters there.

A part time job for this mutt. He sells his "expertise" to the highest bidding slimebag lawyer in endless lawsuits. And he says he will continue to do so, even after pinhead Prekwinkle appoints him.He will, of course, continue to "donate" to the democRAT party.
