Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle has contributed the maximum allowed — $52,500 — to the re-election effort of county board Commissioner Edwin Reyes (D-Chicago), according to state campaign-finance records.

Reyes has fallen out with some of his longtime allies among Northwest Side Hispanic political leaders and is being challenged in Tuesday’s primary election by Luis Arroyo Jr., a son of state Rep. Luis Arroyo (D-Chicago). “Reyes has worked closely with President Preckwinkle on the development of her public safety agenda, and she hopes to continue working with him going forward,” a spokesman for Preckwinkle’s political organization said last month. She also recently contributed $52,500 for the primary campaign of another county board candidate, lawyer Blake Sercye, who’s running in a West Side district.
