Campaign website established for Judge Joanne Rosado

A website has been established to support the election of Judge Joanne Rosado. That's a link to the campaign website in the preceding sentence; when enough candidate websites have been launched, this link will also be included in a blog sidebar.

The Illinois Supreme Court appointed Judge Rosado to the Kennedy vacancy in the 11th Subcircuit earlier this year. According to her campaign bio, before her appointment, Rosado tried "over 40 felony jury trials, including several first degree murder cases, and over 100 felony bench trials" as a Cook County Assistant Public Defender. She joined that office in 2002.

According to her campaign bio, Rosado has served with the Chicago Coalition for Law-Related Education, coaching a Mock Trial team in the Chicago Public Schools. One Bogan High School team that Rosado coached placed among the top four finalists (out of thirty teams). She has also served as a Board Member of the Puerto Rican Bar Association. A graduate of John Marshall Law School, Rosado also attended DePaul University and Resurrection High School.
