Bridget Anne Mitchell announces for countywide Arnold vacancy

Chicago attorney, Bridget Anne Mitchell has announced plans to seek the countywide Arnold vacancy in the upcoming March primary. That's a link to her campaign website in the preceding sentence; a link has been added to the blog Sidebar as well.

Licensed as an attorney in Illinois since 1981, Mitchell currently maintains a LaSalle Street office in the Loop where, according to an emailed announcement received today from the candidate's sister, Nancy L. Mitchell, the candidate concentrates her practice in personal injury and wrongful death matters.

In addition to Nancy, Bridget Anne Mitchell is also the sister of Cook County Circuit Court Judge Raymond W. Mitchell. Judge Raymond W. Mitchell was appointed to the bench by the Illinois Supreme Court in 2008 and thereafter won election (in 2010) to the vacancy to which he had been appointed.

Bridget Anne Mitchell is, according to her campaign website, a lifelong resident of the Beverly-Morgan Park neighborhood. The committee page of her website notes some very prominent supporters, including former Governor James R. Thompson and his wife Jayne Carr Thompson, former U.S. Attorney Dan K. Webb, and Corboy & Demetrio managing partner Robert J. Bingle. Today's campaign announcement also notes that Mitchell is married to Daniel T. Crowe, a partner concentrating in workers compensation matters for the firm of Chilton, Yambert & Porter.

I've known Bridget professionally for a long time and practiced against her many years ago when she worked for the defense. She's a class act, honest, fair, and smart. The people of Cook County would be well served with her on the bench.
