Campaign website launched for Judge Stephanie Saltouros

Judge Stephanie Saltouros now has a campaign website up and running. That's a link to the website in the preceding sentence; a link has also been added to the blog Sidebar.

Saltourous's campaign bio details her 12 years of experience in the State's Attorney's Office, noting that she led the "Domestic Violence prosecution team in the Second Municipal District, where she used her expertise in that area to prosecute hundreds of domestic abusers" and her subsequent service in the Felony Review Unit of the State’s Attorney’s Office, where, according to her campaign site, she "worked closely with police officers from Chicago, Park Ridge, Niles, Des Plaines, and Glenview, assisting in hundreds of investigations that led to the prosecution and conviction of thousands of criminals." The last five years of her career in the State's Attorney's Office were spent as a felony prosecutor. Saltouros started her own practice in 2008. FWIW readers will recall that Saltouros was slated by the Democratic Party for a 10th Subcircuit vacancy in the March 2016 primary. She withdrew from that race, however, throwing her support to Judge Eve Marie Reilly, the eventual primary winner. Saltouros was appointed to the bench in September 2016.

Saltouros and her husband, Jim, are the parents of two children. Judge Saltourous served on her local school counsel and volunteered for the PTA while her children attended Chicago Public Schools. She is a member of the board of the Emergent Theatre.

According to Saltouros's campaign website, State Rep. Robert F. Martwick, Jr. is the Chair of the campaign. Jacob Kaplan, the Executive Director of the Cook County Democratic Party, is the Campaign Manager and Field Director. Michael Tierney is the Assistant Field Director.
