Four file for countywide Stewart vacancy

Judge Pamela M. Leeming is the candidate slated by the Cook County Democratic Party for this vacancy. She serves on the bench pursuant to a recall appointment from the Illinois Supreme Court.

Deidre Baumann also filed for this vacancy.

The other two candidates filing for this vacancy today are Terrence M. Jordan, a Loop practitioner, and Assistant State's Attorney Mary Margaret Burke. I could not find a campaign website for either of these candidates. I have learned, however, that Burke hails from a family of lawyers: Her brother, Richard F. Burke, Jr. is a partner in the Clifford Law Offices. One sister, Nancy A. Burke, is a partner with Chapman & Cutler LLP; another, Kathleen Marie Burke, was elected to the Cook County Circuit Court in 2004.

Jordan has been licensed in Illinois since 1976; Burke has been an attorney in Illinois since 1989.
