Jerry Esrig joins 9th Subcircuit race, fundraiser planned for September 24

Attorney Jerry Esrig has announced plans to seek one of the 9th Subcircuit vacancies. That's a link to his campaign website in the preceding sentence; a link has been added to the blog Sidebar.

Licensed as an Illinois attorney since 1978, Esrig is a founding partner in the firm of Zaideman & Esrig, P.C.. From roughly 1985-1999 the firm was known as Epstein, Zaideman & Esrig, PC. (Esrig's former law partner, Justice James Epstein, was appointed to the Circuit Court in 1999. Epstein was later elected to the Circuit Court and, in 2010, to the Illinois Appellate Court. According to his campaign website, Esrig chaired Justice Epstein's successful bid for the Appellate Court.)

On his campaign website, Esrig writes that, in his practice, he has represented "small and medium sized businesses in commercial disputes and profoundly injured individuals." According to his website, Esrig served as secretary and then president of Am Yisrael Synagogue. As president, he helped initiate construction of the Rabbi William and Toby Frankel Religious Education Center. He has also coached AYSO soccer and Evanston Youth Baseball.

Esrig's supporters are planning a fundraiser for their candidate on Tuesday, September 24, from 5:30 PM to 7:30 p.m., at the Prairie Moon Restaurant, 1502 Sherman Ave., Evanston. Honorary Co-Chairs of the event are Hon. Abner Mikva and Hon. Jan Schakowsky. Tickets are $100 each, but sponsorships are available (Supporter - $250, Sponsor - $500, Host-Sponsor - $1,000). For more information, or to make reservations, see this page of Esrig's campaign website or call Thom Mannard at 847-997-3020.
