One contest so far in two Appellate Court races

Judge Sharon Oden Johnson and petitions
For yesterday's post about the more crowded field in the Gordon vacancy, click here.

Author and attorney David Ellis could not have written a better scenario for his first day as a candidate for the Murphy vacancy on the Illinois Appellate Court: After the first day of filing, Ellis had no challengers.

Appointed by the Illinois Supreme Court to the Murphy vacancy, Justice John B. Simon was slated for the Steele vacancy by the Cook County Democratic Party. Judge Sharon Oden Johnson has filed to oppose Simon's bid to remain on the Appellate Court. (The accompanying picture of Judge Johnson was taken from Facebook and edited to fit the space available.)
