Jessica O'Brien Fashion Fundraiser Election Eve
Jessica A. O'Brien defeated two candidates in the March Primary to claim the Democratic nomination for the countywide Simmons, Jr. vacancy. She faces no opposition in next week's election (no Democratic nominee for a countywide Circuit Court vacancy faces any Republican opposition) but O'Brien does have a campaign debt to retire.
Accordingly, the Jessica O'Brien for Judge Committee is planning a program, "Fire, Fashion & Politics," on Monday, November 5, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Chicago Firehouse Restaurant, 1401 S. Michigan Avenue, in Chicago.
Summer Jackson-Cole, of WCIU-TV, will serve as host of the fashion show. Cameron Croft, Social Entrepreneur, and Carmen C. Rivera, Assistant to the Publisher of Chicago Magazine, will be Master and Mistress of Ceremonies. The "headlining fashion designer" is Borris Powell. Special appearances by local actors from the NBC-TV series Chicago Fire are also planned. To view the entire program for the event, see O'Brien's campaign website.
Tickets are $50 a person in advance, $75 at the door. To reserve tickets, see the website or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am an experienced attorney (concentrating in insurance coverage, insurance litigation and civil appeals). I am certified as a Mediator in the Cook County Law Division Major Case Court-Annexed Civil Mediation Program and the Chancery Division Mediation Program.
I will try and put up information about your candidacy as soon as I can find it -- but I do have a day job. If you want to make sure I publicize your announcement as soon as you're ready to make it, please email me at email@example.com.
Also, campaign committees please take note: I will be pleased to put up information about your fundraisers or any other activities you wish to publicize -- free, gratis and for nothing -- no strings attached. But I will only do so if you ask me to. Please send me an email giving me all the information about your event and I will get it posted as soon as I can.
If you're looking to provide a product or service to Cook County judicial candidates, please take note: I will consider accepting advertisements for products and services aimed at judicial candidates for the coming election cycle.
Advertisements -- clearly labeled as such -- will be put up as posts on the blog for a one-time fee. I reserve the right to edit or reject ad copy. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for information and rates.
