campaign website has been launched for Assistant State's Attorney Janet Mahoney, candidate for the Mathein vacancy in the 12th Subcircuit. That's a link to the campaign website in the preceding sentence; a link has also been added to the blog Sidebar.
Mahoney's campaign website notes that she is the Democratic Party's slated candidate in this race. Licensed as an attorney in Illinois since 1987, Mahoney has spent her entire career in the State's Attorney's Office. After an early assignment in the Narcotics Division, Mahoney returned to the Appellate Division in 1990, staying there since, becoming "a recognized expert in criminal law and procedure" and "mentoring new attorneys beginning their careers" in the office, according to her campaign bio. Mahoney's website also notes that she is a founding member of the Advisory Committee of Catholic Charities Legal Assistance (CCLA).
