Six file for Bronstein vacancy

(Links are to candidate websites where known.)

Diann K. Marsalek is the slated candidate in this race. Filing also for this vacancy are Kevin J. Murphy (see post below) and Thomas William Flannigan.

Terry MacCarthy also filed for the Bronstein vacancy. MacCarthy ran for the Glowacki vacancy in 2008 and did receive the endorsement of the Chicago Sun-Times. As this is his first mention here in this election cycle, let me point out that I've today added a link to his campaign website in the Sidebar.

James Edward Hanlon, a lawyer since 1984, with a background in antitrust, securities and business litigation, has also filed for the Bronstein vacancy as has Sharon Finegan Patterson. This is Patterson's third bench bid. She filed for the Sheehan vacancy in the 8th Subcircuit in 2008 and for several countywide slots as well. She settled on the Glowacki vacacy, but withdrew from that in December 2007. Patterson finished third in the 2006 Primary to Pamela E. Hill Veal in the race for the Schiller vacancy. Patterson has a solo office in the Loop; she's been a lawyer since 1980 and, according to her Sullivan's entry, practices in the areas of commercial litigation, employment disputes and personal injury.
