campaign website has been launched for Thomas William Flannigan, Republican candidate for the Kazmierski, Jr. vacancy in the 12th Subcircuit. That's a link to the site in the preceding sentence; a link has also been added to the blog Sidebar.
Flannigan's website stresses that he accepts no campaign donations -- but, the site notes, "contributions of time will be eagerly accepted. We need help sending out a campaign mailing, posting yard signs and other activities. If you would like to help please email us at Passport@prodigy.net."
According to his campaign website, Flannigan is "one of a handful of American attorneys who speak Japanese fluently," and he has leveraged this skill into a niche practice advising American companies looking to do business in Japan or with Japanese companies. Before opening this practice, in 1993, according to this campaign website, Flannigan worked for a number of firms in Chicago and Tokyo, starting in 1985. Earlier in his career, Flannigan was a law clerk to Illinois Supreme Court Justice William G. Clark. Flannigan has been licensed as an attorney in Illinois since 1983. He is married to Circuit Court Judge Ellen Flannigan.
