Lugo withdraws; De La Rosa now unopposed for 6th Subcircuit Ponce de Leon vacancy
Eulalia "Evie" De La Rosa
Ricardo Lugo withdrew from the race for the Ponce de Leon vacancy in the 6th Judicial Subcircuit on Friday, according to the Illinois State Board of Elections. Lugo's withdrawal from the race leaves Assistant Public Defender Eulalia "Evie" De La Rosa, the Immediate Past President of the Puerto Rican Bar Association of Illinois, as the sole remaining candidate for this vacancy. (And, yes, that's a link to De La Rosa's new campaign website in the preceding sentence; a link has been added to the blog Sidebar.)
