Tracey J. Stokes website, fundraiser announced

Per email received today from attorney Peter D. Finocchiaro, a campaign website has been launched for Tracey J. Stokes, a candidate for the countywide Riley vacancy. That's a link to the campaign website in the preceding sentence. A link has also been added to the Sidebar.

Finocchiaro also writes that a fundraiser has been set by the Stokes campaign for Tuesday, January 12, from 5:00 to 7:00pm at the Blackbird Restaurant, 619 W. Randolph in Chicago.

Individual tickets for the event are priced at $75. However, 'friend' level tickets may be obtained for $500, 'supporter' tickets for $1,000, and 'sponsor' tickets for $1,500. For additional information about the fundraiser, or to order tickets, see this page of the Stokes website or contact attorney Karen S. Bogusz, the campaign treasurer.

Did Mr. Finocchiaro provide you with an update of the status of the petition challenge against Ms. Stokes? The Illinois State Board of Elections website still lists her (as of this hour) as having an objection still pending. Now I know the State board website is not always up to date on such matters, so that is why I was wondering.

Fair question, Anon. According to the Cook County Clerk's website the objection to Stokes' petitions was overruled. I don't know if the battle was carried into the Circuit Court. Perhaps a reader will know.

I am very happy to report that the challengers-Jesse Juarez and Susanna Accove, conceded on the evening of December 23, 2009. The battle is over! I am on the ballot and my campaign is in full swing!
