Campaign website found for Judge Eve Marie Reilly

Found on the Internet, the campaign website of Judge Eve Marie Reilly, appointed by the Illinois Supreme Court to the Howard vacancy in the 10th Subcircuit but passed over by 10th Subcircuit committeemen at their recent slating meeting. That's a link to the campaign website in the preceding sentence; a link has also been added to the blog Sidebar.

Readers will recall the 10th Subcircuit slatemakers named Reilly as an "alternate," meaning that the Party would support her if another vacancy opened up.

Now -- this is just the blogger speaking here -- and I want to make that clear because, as of this writing, I've not been contacted by Judge Reilly or anyone on her behalf -- it sure looks like she's not going to wait around and see if that speculative contingency occurs.

Reilly's campaign website notes that she worked her way through John Marshall Law School as a law clerk for the firm of Patricia C. Bobb and Associates. After obtaining her license in 1997, Reilly went to work for the Cook County State's Attorney's Office, remaining in that office until her appointment to the bench in August 2014. According to her campaign website, Reilly supervised ASA's "in the prosecution of criminal appeals before the Illinois Appellate and Supreme Courts" from 2006-2012. Her campaign website lists Mike Demetrio, of Corboy & Demetrio, as her campaign manager; Mike Kasper as her campaign legal advisor; and Mike Tierney as her campaign consultant. Corboy & Demetrio administrator Marcy Twardak is listed as the campaign treasurer.
