Edward J. King campaign website launched

A campaign website has been launched for Judge Edward J. King. That's a link to the campaign website in the preceding sentence; a link has also been added to the blog Sidebar.

The Illinois Supreme Court appointed Judge King to the Kunkle vacancy in the 4th Subcircuit in October 2014. He was licensed to practice law in Illinois in 1981. According to his campaign website, before taking the bench, King's private practice "focused on personal injury, chancery, estate, and criminal matters." In addition, King worked as the attorney for the Township of Lyons for nearly 29 years. From 1988, according to the website, King also served as a special assistant attorney general handling eminent domain matters. He worked as a volunteer attorney for the Lyons Township Mental Health Commission for 25 years.

King holds bachelor's and master's degrees in journalism from Northern Illinois University. He served in the United States Marine Corps in both active duty and reserve roles between 1970 and 1976. His J.D. was conferred by John Marshall Law School in 1981. King and his wife are the parents of four children.
