Kevin Cunningham to seek 3rd Subcircuit vacancy; June 6 fundraiser set

Kevin Cunningham will seek a 3rd Subcircuit vacancy and a campaign website supporting his effort has gone online. That's a link to the site in the preceding sentence; the link will be added to the blog sidebar when the sidebar is set up.

Cunningham's website stresses his experience as village prosecutor for Oak Lawn and Sauk Village, and as a hearing officer for Willow Springs. It also notes his service with the Southwest Bar Association, holding every office within the organization at some point and serving as President in 2009.

The website also notes Cunningham's Southwest Side roots. A native of Mount Greenwood, according to the campaign website, Cunningham graduated from Queen of Martyrs and Brother Rice High School. He and his wife reside in West Beverly. Of their three children, one graduated from Mother McAuley High School and now attends college, another is graduating from Brother Rice this spring, and the youngest attends St. Barnabas. According to the campaign website, Cunningham has coached for the Ridge Beverly Baseball League and currently manages his son's hockey team for the St. Jude Knights Program.

Cunningham sought a countywide vacancy in 2012. He also filed for a countywide vacancy in 2016, but withdrew before the primary.

Cunningham's supporters have announced a fundraiser for their candidate on Tuesday, June 6, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m., at Barraco's Beverly location, 2105 W. 95th Street. Tickets are $50 each or two for $75 and may be purchased through the candidate's campaign website or at the door. Sponsorships are also available (Level 1 - $125, Level 2 - $250, Level 3 - $500, or Platinum - $1,000). For additional information concerning the event, email
