Brad Trowbridge announces judicial bid; fundraiser planned

Updated 10/14/11

Family law attorney Brad Trowbridge has announced plans to run for judge from Cook County's 8th Judicial Subcircuit. That's a link to Trowbridge's campaign website in the preceding sentence; a link has also been added to the sidebar.

Trowbridge's website says that he was a social worker before becoming a lawyer. "After obtaining my MA in Human Development Counseling in 1986," Trowbridge writes on his campaign site, "I worked for many years with disadvantaged people from all walks of life: minority teen mothers, people with HIV/AIDS, and seniors living in poverty. I didn’t sit in an office. I did home visits in places like Cabrini-Green and the Lathrop Homes." Trowbridge became an attorney in 2000. He filed for the countywide McCarthy vacancy in 2010 but withdrew from the race in December 2009.

Trowbridge's campaign will have a fundraiser on Friday, October 21 from 7:00 to 10:00pm in the Party Room at 3150 N. Sheridan. Individual tickets are priced at $100 each, but there are additional sponsorship opportunities (Patron: $1,000, Sponsor: $500, and Advocate: $250). To reserve tickets, or for additional information, call 312-504-4258 or email
