Another 11th Subcircuit candidate -- and website

There is at least one more candidate pursuing the Riley vacancy in Cook County's 11th Judicial Subcircuit: Maritza Martinez, a finalist for Associate Judge in 2007, is pursing a bid. That's a link to Martinez's website in the preceding sentence; a link has been added to the Sidebar as well.

Martinez is presently associated with the Law Offices of Robert A. Fisher, Ltd. A lawyer since 1989, Martinez has worked for the City of Chicago as an Assistant Corporation Counsel and, according to her campaign site, currently serves as a Commissioner for the Illinois Court of Claims. Martinez was briefly a candidate for the Burke vacancy on the Illinois Appellate Court; she withdrew, however, before the 2008 primary.

Martinez is also on Twitter: While I do not presume to understand how this works, it appears that you can follow MaritzaForJudge by following this link.
