John P. Callahan website up and running

Per email received from attorney Patrick J. Enright, who advises he is helping with the campaign, the campaign website of Judge John P. Callahan, recently appointed by the Illinois Supreme Court to the countywide Kelly vacancy and, almost immediately thereafter, slated for that post by the Cook County Democratic Party. That's a link to the website in the preceding sentence; a link has also been added to the Sidebar.

A lawyer since 1988, Callahan's website notes that he is a 1981 graduate of Marist High School, that his undergraduate degree was conferred in 1985 at Marquette University, and that his law degree was was awarded in 1988 by Chicago-Kent Law School. After graduation, Callahan worked for Price, Waterhouse as a tax consultant before joining the Cook County State's Attorney's office in 1989. According to the campaign website, Callahan rose through the ranks in the State's Attorney's Office, eventually working in the Gang Crimes Unit. He left that office in 1996 to join Sullivan, Hincks and Conway, the firm for which he was working at the time of his appointment to the bench.

Callahan's website also notes a number of upcoming fundraisers:
