Five file for Berland vacancy

Links are to candidate websites where known.

Deidre Baumann has filed to challenge slated candidate Judge William H. Hooks. Also filing for this vacancy were Bonnie Carol McGrath, Kevin Murphy and Susan Kennedy Sullivan.

Sullivan was mentioned in Abdon Pallasch's September 20 article for the Sun-Times about judicial slating. A lawyer since 1994, with an office on LaSalle Street in the Loop, Sullivan reminded the committeemen that, "My first campaign efforts were to support John Kennedy, that's John A. Kennedy of Winnetka, my father, who was the Democratic candidate in 1962 against a young upstart, Donald Rumsfeld." She was, however, passed over.

According to Sullivan's, Murphy has a law office on West 127th Street in Palos Heights and focuses his practice in personal injury, real estate and probate matters. He has been an attorney since 1981 and is the brother of Circuit Court Judge Timothy P. Murphy.
