Endorsements by Illinois Fraternal Order of Police in Supreme, Appellate Court races

The Illinois Fraternal Order of Police, Illinois State Lodge has endorsed Justice Mary Jane Theis in her bid to remain on the Illinois Supreme Court.

The ILFOP has also announced three endorsements in First District Appellate Court races. The ILFOP has endorsed Judge James M. McGing for the Cahill vacancy, Judge Marguerite Anne Quinn for the Gallagher vacancy and Judge Jesse G. Reyes for the O'Brien vacancy.

Daniel Nelson, General Counsel and Director of Governmental Affairs for the ILFOP, advised FWIW that the ILFOP does not make endorsements for circuit judges. In an email, Nelson wrote that local lodges, like the Chicago Lodge No. 7, are encouraged to participate in local issues.
