Peter Vilkelis campaign website launched, fundraiser set

Per email received, Judge Peter Vilkelis has launched a campaign website and his supporters are planning a fundraiser for their candidate on October 24, from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m., at Cavanaugh's, in the Monadnock Building, 53 W. Jackson.

That's a link to Judge Vilkelis's website in the preceding sentence; a link has also been added to the blog Sidebar.

The Vilkelis campaign is asking for a $100 minimum donation for the October 24 event, payable through the campaign website or at the door. Reservations, however, are requested by October 17. To make reservations, or for more information about the event, email

Vilkelis has served on the bench since 2011. Initially appointed to the O'Brien vacancy in 2011, Judge Vilkelis ran unsuccessfully for the Ward vacancy in the March 2012 primary. In December 2012 the Illinois Supreme Court appointed Judge Vilkelis to the countywide vacancy created by the elevation of Judge Maureen E. Connors to the Appellate Court. Vilkelis's website confirms that he is running for the Connors vacancy.
