James Patrick Crawley announces for Veal vacancy; November 19 fundraiser planned

Chicago attorney James Patrick Crawley has announced he is running for the countywide judicial vacancy created by the retirement of Judge Pamela Hill Veal. Crawley had previously announced plans to seek judicial office this past May; his campaign website has been in the blog Sidebar for some time now.

Meanwhile, Crawley’s campaign committee has announced plans to host a "Meet the Candidate" Campaign Kick-Off event on Tuesday, November 19, from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m., at The Florentine in the JW Marriott Hotel, 151 W. Adams Street. The event is remarkable in that there is no charge to attend -- that is, it will be free -- "for persons interested in meeting the candidate or who wish to show their support," according to the campaign. Sponsorships are nevertheless available for $100, $250, $500 or $1,500. However, the campaign is asking persons interested in attending to contact by November 16th to reserve a place.

I have worked with Jim for many years and feel that he will be an excellent judge. Jim's knowledge of the law along with his intellect will make him an asset to the bench.
