Maritza Martinez has announced her plans to run for the Cook County Circuit Court in the 2014 Democratic Primary. That's a link to her campaign website in the preceding sentence; the link will be included in the list of candidate websites in the Sidebar on this page when that is put up.

A licensed attorney since 1989, Martinez is a Commissioner at the Illinois Court of Claims, serves as an Inquiry Board Panel Chair and as an Oversight Committee Member for the Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission, and works as a criminal defense and civil rights attorney at the Law Offices of Victor J.

Martinez ran for judge in the 11th Subcircuit in the 2010 and 2012 primaries.

Martinez's campaign committee has scheduled an August 7 fundraiser at Gino's East, 162 E. Superior Street, from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m. Appetizers will be served; there will be a cash bar. Tickets are priced at $150 each, but additional sponsorship levels are available (Patron - $300, Supporter - $500, or Sponsor - $1,000).
