Judith C. Rice launches 7th Subcircuit judicial bid

Found online: Former Chicago Revenue Director and City Treasurer Judith Rice is running for a vacancy in Cook County's 7th Judicial Subcircuit. That's a link to Rice's campaign website in the preceding sentence; a link has also been added to the Sidebar.

Licensed as an attorney in Illinois since 1988, Rice is currently employed by BMO Harris Bank as Senior Vice President, Community Affairs & Economic Development.

The daughter of former Chicago Police Superintendent Fred Rice, Judith Rice began working for the City of Chicago in the Corporation Counsel's office in 1989. She moved to the Department of Revenue in 1993, first as Deputy Director, then as Director in 1995. In 1996 Mayor Richard M. Daley appointed her Commissioner of the Department of Water. She later became Commissioner of the Chicago Department of Transportation before being named City Treasurer in November 2000 (replacing Miriam Santos after Santos pleaded guilty to a felony mail fraud charge). Elected to a full term in 2003, Rice stepped down in late 2006, joining Mayor Daley's staff to work on special projects involving economic development. She joined BMO Harris in 2007.

According to her campaign bio, Rice serves, or has served, on the boards of the March of Dimes, UCAN, the Chicago Public Library (through January 2012), Neighborhood Housing Services, and the Civic Federation.
