Judge Bates currently serves by appointment to the Lampkin vacancy in the 2nd Subcircuit. His campaign website touts his two years' experience as a Circuit Court judge (prior to his current appointment, Judge Bates served in a different, countywide vacancy), 15 years as an administrative law judge, and 15 more as an attorney. The site lists attorneys Louis C. Cairo, of Goldberg Weisman & Cairo, and Larry Rogers Jr., of Powers, Rogers & Smith as campaign co-chairs (Rogers also serves as a Commissioner of the Board of Review). The website also lists 34th Ward Ald. Carrie M. Austin, 9th Ward Ald. Anthony Beale, 21st Ward Ald. Howard B. Brookins, Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle, 6th Ald. Roderick Sawyer, and Cook County Recorder of Deeds Karen Yarbrough are listed as honorary campaign co-chairs.
