Assistant State's Attorney Megan Goldish has joined the field of candidates seeking one of the three vacancies available in Cook County's 9th Judicial Subcircuit. That's a link to Goldish's campaign website in the preceding sentence; a link has also been added to the blog Sidebar.

Licensed as an attorney in Illinois since 1997, Goldish's campaign website notes that she has been a first chair in the Felony Trial Division of the State's Attorney's Office since 2008. The site emphasizes her prior work in the Domestic Violence Division on behalf of women and children who have been the victims of abuse. Goldish's campaign website also notes her service on the Junior Board of the Chicago Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired and on the board of the Lynn Sage Cancer Research Foundation. According to the website, Goldish has also been an active volunteer with the Jewish United Fund and other Jewish organizations, a supporter of the 100 Club, the Illinois Alzheimers Association and the Big Shoulders Fund.

Goldish's website notes her membership in several bar associations and, in particular, her active involvement in the Women's Bar Association of Illinois, including the WBAI / State’s Attorney’s Law Student Mentoring program and the nominating and selections committees for the WBAI's Reach Up Rise Back Award.

But Goldish's website also notes that Goldish is a graduate of Chicago’s Second City Conservatory and the Second City Musical Improv program. According to her website, Goldish has performed in productions at the Annoyance Theater, Studio B, and the Skybox Theater at Second City.
