Campaign website, May 24 fundraiser announced for Judge Kent Delgado

Supporters of Judge Kent A. Delgado's bid to retain the 6th Subcircuit seat to which he was appointed earlier this year have launched a campaign website for the upcoming primary campaign. That's a link to the site in the preceding sentence; this link will also be included in a blog sidebar when enough candidate websites have been launched. We're getting closer on that.

Judge Delgado's website touts his experience as an attorney in "an office in a neighborhood storefront on the corner of Western and Augusta in Humboldt Park/Ukrainian Village." There, according to the campaign website, Delgado handled "criminal defense, traffic, immigration, probate, and real estate" matters for a decade. Before that, the website states, Delgado "served as an Assistant State’s Attorney where he prosecuted violent crimes including murder and domestic violence. He prosecuted over 70 jury trials and received the Constance Morris House Award for commitment and service to domestic violence victims." Delgado has been licensed as an attorney in Illinois since 1996. He was previously a candidate for a 6th Subcircuit vacancy, in 2012, withdrawing shortly before the primary that year.

In addition to the campaign website, Delgado's supporters have also announced a fundraiser for their candidate, on Wednesday, May 24, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Frontier, 1072 N. Milwaukee.

Tickets are $100 apiece ($50 for government employees) but sponsorships are available (Neighbor - $250, Friend - $500, Patron - $1,000, Benefactor - $2,500). The ticket price includes "light fare" and an open bar. Tickets will be available at the door.

Tickets can be ordered at this page of the campaign website. For more information, email
