Thomas Maloney Cushing (Howlett, Jr. vacancy). That's a link to the site in the preceding sentence; a link has also been added to the blog Sidebar.
(OK, not exactly "found." More like led to, pointed at, or essentially handed the link by Jimm Dispensa of Aldertrack.com, for which I am grateful.)
Cushing's campaign website blends his volunteer credentials with his professional accomplishments: "Over the years Tom has volunteered in numerous settings, including serving 21 years on the Board of Regents at Mercy Home for Boys and Girls, coaching girls/boys basketball, softball and baseball, and presiding as School Board Chairman at St. Athanasius. Much like his volunteer life, Tom has excelled professionally. A lawyer for 25 years, Tom has had an extraordinarily successful and varied legal career. He has secured multiple verdicts and settlements for injury victims and small businesses in excess of $1M. He has represented companies in commercial disputes, as well as organizations advocating for a cleaner, more sustainable society. In addition, Tom has taken all of his practical experience to the classroom as an Adjunct Professor of Law at Loyola Law School."
Cushing's sole opponent in the March primary is Judge Aleksandra "Alex" Gillespie.
