Kim Foxx Career
Kim spent three years as an associate public guardian in the Cook County Public Guardian’s Office after graduating from law school. She then spent 12 years as an assistant state attorney in Cook County, serving as a state attorney during Richard A. Devine’s time. In that capacity, she was involved in child protection and juvenile delinquency. She joined the administration of Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle in 2013 as a deputy chief of staff, working on criminal justice issues. She became Preckwinkle’s chief of staff, a position she held until 2016. Foxx announced in September 2015 that she would be running against incumbent Anita Alvarez for the Cook County State Attorney in the 2016 election. Her second opponent was Donna More, a former federal and state prosecutor. Foxx was active on a criminal justice reform platform, focusing on policies such as redirecting low-level offenders to treatment programs instead of prisons, taking stronger action against police misconduct, and tackling false convictions. She had three opponents in the Democratic Party primaries: Bill Conway, Bob Fioretti and Donna More. Foxx stated shortly after taking office in March 2017 that the prosecution would no longer continue to detain some detainees who failed to pay the $1,000 bail. Despite criticism from the Illinois State Attorneys’ Association, Foxx testified before the Illinois General Assembly in support of the proposed Bail Reform Act.
