Tom Biesty running for judge in 10th Subcircuit

Tom Biesty, a veteran prosecutor who's been associated with the Cook County State's Attorney's cold case unit, and who recently prosecuted Juan Luna for his part in the 1993 Palatine Brown's Chicken massacre, is running for judge in the 10th Subcircuit.

Biesty's wife, Mary, a teacher at Sauganash Elementary School in Chicago, was circulating petitions at Notre Dame High School in Niles this morning. It was a good place to pick up valid signatures: The school was hosting Homecoming for St. Tarcissus Grade School and the stadium was packed -- and, as a bonus, there was a Notre Dame freshman football game before the St. Tars games.

In conversing with Mrs. Biesty, I learned that Judge Dennis J. Morrissey will be stepping aside, leaving a third vacancy in the 10th Subcircuit. Here's a link to the updated vacancy list (as of September 19).

Worked with him at the state's attorney. Good guy, will make a good judge.
He's from outside of Illinois, so a lot of the political garbage will be muted.
