Kevin Cunningham plans countywide judicial bid

Family law attorney Beth F. McCormack writes in to advise that Oak Lawn attorney Kevin Cunningham is planning a 2016 countywide judicial run.

Licensed as an attorney in Illinois since 1992, McCormack writes that Cunningham "was a Cook County State’s Attorney for 6 years, and made his way to the felony trial division. Since 1998 he has been in private practice, handling a wide variety of both civil and criminal matters. Notably, he has practiced law in almost every division of the Circuit Court of Cook County, including the Criminal, Juvenile, Municipal, Law, Domestic Relations and Probate Divisions. Mr. Cunningham has been the Village Prosecutor for the Village of Oak Lawn since 2007. In this regard he presents all prosecutions of traffic and ordinance violations for the Village. He is also an administrative hearing officer for the Village of Willow Springs. He is an active member of the Southwest Bar Association, and served as President in 2009. Mr. Cunningham resides in the Southwest-Side neighborhood of West Beverly, which is located in the 19th Ward. He has been married to his wife, Sarah, for 21 years and they have 3 children."

Cunningham was also a countywide judicial candidate in 2012.

Here come the south-side Irish. More predictable than Toni Preckwinkle in a blue suit and more entertaining than Monday night football. Judicial Election Season does not officially begin for me until a south-side Irish candidate emerges to take on one of the unfortunate countywide slated candidates with a non-Irish or otherwise poor sounding ballot name. A "Cunningham", even with only $99.23 in the election committee account, is a dangerous animal. Someone please tell me who Mr. Cunningham has in his crosshairs. I will anxiously wait by my computer for the news, hoping it is a candidate "represented" by Mary Kay Dawson. That would make this race extra special for me.

@anon 8:30 Your comments about Ms. Dawson are "on Point". Keep them coming. I can't believe that judicial candidates are still fooled by her after the dozens she has ripped off in the past.
