The voters of the 13th Subcircuit of Cook County have rendered their decision and they have elected me as your next Judge of the Circuit Court.
This is your victory. You decided that politics needs to stay out of our courtrooms and that everyone deserves a fair shake. You did the work possible to take our good fight to the voters and make the case for something different here.
I thank each and every one of you for being with me on the journey and making all of those sacrifices with us. Putting out signs at polling places, calling friends for votes, posting on Facebook, making donations, walking precincts and more - your support and contributions were endless. All of these things are what this success was made from.
In the weeks to come, I will close my office and transition my clients into the care of colleagues who are ready to serve them. The wonderful experiences and memories of serving wonderful clients during the past 28 years will always be with me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you have done to make this moment possible.
