Kelly Maloney Kachmarik plans countywide judicial bid, announces initial fundraiser

Attorney Kelly Maloney Kachmarik has announced plans to seek election to the countywide Veal vacancy. That's a link to Kachmarik's website in the preceding sentence; a link has also been added to the blog Sidebar.

Licensed in Illinois since 2001, Kachmarik currently works for James J. Roche & Associates (full disclosure: I have previously worked with Mr. Roche and Ms. Kachmarik). According to Kachmarik's campaign website, while a student at DePaul Law School, Kachmarik was a summer associate for the firm now known as Sidley Austin LLP. She also served as an extern to former U.S. District Court Judge Wayne Andersen.

A graduate of Mother McAuley High School, Kachmarik later became one of the founders of the McAuley Law Society, for alumnae who, like Kachmarik, joined the legal profession. According to her website, Kachmarik has also been active in the CBA JEC and the Women's Bar Association and serves as a volunteer at the Cossit School in La Grange.

Supporters of Kachmarik's campaign have planned a fundraiser for their candidate at the BeviAmo Wine Bar, 1358 W. Taylor St. in Chicago, on October 10 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. Tickets are $30 apiece. For more information about the event, or to order tickets, see the candidate's website.
