Another judicial candidate says she is not participating in the CEIDC joint fundraiser -- but she is having one of her own on March 1

This morning's post prompted an email from Cook County judicial candidate Cynthia Ramirez.

Ramirez wanted to let me know that, like Judge Alfred M. Swanson, Jr., she too is not participating in the "Road to Victory" multi-candidate fundraiser scheduled for March 16 by the Committee to Elect Illinois Democratic Candidates (CEIDC). Ramirez was listed as one of the participating candidates on the evite at the time of my original post, but her email today was unequivocal. "I am not participating in their event," she wrote, adding that she and her campaign committee "recently sent CEIDC a letter requesting that they remove my name from their list of participants."

As of this evening, however, Ramirez is still listed on the CEIDC evite as a candidate for whom one may buy a ticket. But Ramirez's campaign committee is instead encouraging her supporters to come to a fundraiser on March 1, from 5:00 to 7:00pm, at Tumbao, 3213 W. Armitage in Chicago. The suggested contribution is $25. For additional information about the event, call James Robinson at (312) 332-0055.
