LAPA makes judicial endorsements

The Latin American Police Association has announced endorsements in certain Cook County judicial races.

According to LAPA President Michael J. Chuchro, with whom I spoke earlier this afternoon, LAPA is endorsing Appellate Court Justice Joy V. Cunningham for the Illinois Supreme Court and Circuit Court Judge Jesse G. Reyes for the O'Brien vacancy on the Appellate Court.

LAPA also chose to make endorsements in only two of the many countywide Circuit Court races, singling out Cynthia Ramirez (O'Brien vacancy) and Diann K. Marsalek (O'Mara Frossard vacancy). Maritza Martinez, candidate for the O'Brien vacancy in the 11th Subcircuit was the only subcircuit candidate endorsed by LAPA.

Side note: Yes, there really are three different "O'Brien" judicial vacancies on the ballot in Cook County this year.
