Crowded field in 6th Subcircuit

If everyone who's filed remained on the ballot, the race for the Delgado vacancy in the 6th Subcircuit will be the most crowded on the ballot. There are nine candidates in the field to date. The first five candidates to file in this race were profiled in this post.

Filing Monday were Kent Delgado, Richard Lugo, Glenn J. Kahn, and Carlos Vazquez.

Kent Delgado is a former prosecutor, now practicing with the firm of Delgado & Tiernan, P.C. He has been an Illinois attorney since 1996.

Ricardo Lugo is Deputy General Counsel in the Clerk of the Circuit Court's office. That's a link to Lugo's campaign website in the preceding sentence; a link has been added to the sidebar. Lugo has been an Illinois attorney since 2001, but he has, according to his website, been in practice for 20 years. The first decade of his legal career was spent in Milwaukee and Racine, Wisconsin as an Assistant State Public Defender.

Glenn J. Kahn is a principal in the personal injury firm of Kipnis & Kahn, Ltd. He's been an Illinois attorney since 1991.

The ninth candidate in this race is Carlos Vazquez. There are two attorneys in Illinois named Carlos Vazquez, father and son I presume, who share offices on W. Division. One was licensed in 1986; the other was licensed in 2004. One of them filed to oppose Michael Tully Mullen and Judge Caroline Kate Moreland for the countywide Stralka vacancy; presumably it was the same Carlos Vazquez that filed in this race. Hopefully an FWIW reader will provide information about the correct Mr. Vazquez.
