Campaign website, June 29 campaign kickoff announced for Judge H. Yvonne Coleman

Judge H. Yvonne Coleman just took office in March of this year, when the Illinois Supreme Court appointed her to fill the Banks vacancy in the 5th Subcircuit, but her supporters have wasted no time in setting up a campaign website on her behalf. That's a link to the campaign website in the preceding sentence; a link has been added to the blog Sidebar as well.

Coleman was in private practice at the time of her appointment, concentrating, according to her LinkedIn profile, "in employment and civil rights litigation, workplace investigations, and mediation." She previously served, according to the LinkedIn profile, as Bureau Chief of the Civil Rights and Disability Rights Bureaus in the Office of the Illinois Attorney General, and as Manager and Chief Hearing Officer, Appeals Division, with the Illinois Department of Employment Security. Coleman also served as General Counsel with the City of Chicago Independent Police Review Authority, according to LinkedIn.

Coleman's supporters have announced a campaign kickoff for their candidate, to be held on Thursday, June 29, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., at Gallery Guichard, 436 E. 47th Street.

Tickets for the event are $100 each, but sponsorships are available ($250, $500, $1,000). To reserve tickets, or for more information, call (773) 609-3615 or email
