Who's running for judge in the 13th Subcircuit?

FWIW readers are already aware of Judge Ketki "Kay" Shroff Steffen, who was appointed by the Illinois Supreme Court to the "A" vacancy in 13th Subcircuit in January 2010. According to the Schaumburg Township Republican Party website, however, Shroff is circulating petitions for the Pietrucha vacancy.

Also circulating petitions for the Pietrucha vacancy in the northwest suburban subcircuit, according to the Schaumburg Township GOP website, are Nicholas G. Grapsas, the Cook County Public Administrator. An Illinois attorney since 1988, Graspas also maintains a law office in Chicago's Greektown neighborhood.

A third potential candidate for the Pietrucha vacancy is Assistant State's Attorney Paul S. Pavlus. Pavlus ran for the Ryan vacancy in the 13th Subcircuit in 2008, finishing second to Ann O'Donnell in a four-way race.

The only candidate identified on the Schaumburg Township GOP site for the "A" vacancy is Martin C. Kelley. An Illinois attorney since 1992, Kelley was a candidate for a 13th Subcircuit vacancy in 2006. He practices with the Schaumburg firm of Kelley Kelley & Kelley.

I have so far been unable to find a campaign website for Grampas, Pavlus or Kelley. I am not aware of any Democrats intending to file for either vacancy in 13. Persons with information about these or other candidates are encouraged to contact this blog by either leaving a comment or sending me an email.
