Three Cook County judicial candidates filed early this morning for vacancies in the 5th and 12th Subcircuits, according to the Illinois State Board of Elections website.
Daryl Jones, who previously filed for the Williams vacancy in the 5th Subcircuit, filed this morning for the Eadie-Daniels vacancy there. As of the original time of this post, Jones had not yet withdrawn from the contest for the Williams vacancy.
Associate Judge Leonard Murray also filed for the Eadie-Daniels vacancy this morning. Judge Murray was one of the several judges tabbed as "alternate" candidates for the Appellate Court by the Cook County Democratic Party this past summer. Jameika Mangum, who also filed for the Williams vacancy, but withdrew from that race, is the third candidate in the race for the Eadie-Daniels vacancy so far.
On the Republican side, Park Ridge attorney James Leonard Allegretti has filed for the Mathein vacancy. He is so far the only Republican to file for this vacancy. An attorney since 1978, Allegretti practices with the firm of Allegretti & Associates.
