Three new candidates file in 4th Subcircuit races

Two Democrats filed Monday for the "A" vacancy in the 4th Subcircuit; a Republican filed Monday for the 4th Subcircuit Riley vacancy.

The new Democrats are Martin D. Reggi and Edward M. Maloney.

Marty Reggi Jr. sent me an email to advise about his father's filing; he said his father is a general practitioner who's been an attorney for 31 years. Martin D. Reggi's law office is in Berwyn.

Edward M. Maloney also sent me an email. He wrote to tell me that he's been slated by the Democratic Party for this vacancy -- and also to clarify that he's not the same Edward Maloney who filed for countywide Pucinski vacancy. (That's Edward J. Maloney.) He wants to avoid any confusion.

This Edward Maloney, Edward M. Maloney, is a partner in the Skokie firm of Ahern Maloney Moran & Block. Maloney writes that his firm concentrates in "criminal defense but we are also the authors of the IICLE book on DUI defense. Because of that, I have been a speaker at over 100 bar association seminars on traffic-related issues and am the past Chairman of both the CBA and ISBA Traffic law Committees." An Illinois attorney since 1978, Edward M. Maloney does not have a campaign website yet, but he says one will be online soon.

The Republican filing for the Riley vacancy is Harry J. Fournier. Fournier, an Illinois attorney since 1997, practices as Fournier Law Firm, Ltd. Fournier's filing sets up one of the very few Republican judicial primary contests in Cook County. (There are potential Republican contests in one 12th and one 13th Subcircuit race as well.)
