Two new judicial campaign websites found on the Internet

Here are two judicial candidates who haven't yet reached out to me at -- but I found them anyway.

On the left is Stephan J. Feldman. I've added a link to his campaign website in the blog Sidebar; Feldman also has a campaign Facebook page up and running.

FWIW readers may recall that Feldman ran for a countywide vacancy in the 2014 primary. This time, according to his campaign website, Feldman has his sights set on an 8th Subcircuit vacancy. The campaign website also contains a link to Feldman's law firm site. I think they call that "synergy" in business school.

Licensed as an attorney since 2001, according to ARDC, Feldman's campaign website stresses his experience as a hearing officer for the Secretary of State's Office, presiding over 1,000 contested hearings. Since 2011, according to the campaign website, Feldman has also served as an adjunct professor at his alma mater, the John Marshall Law School, teaching trial advocacy. Feldman's Facebook campaign page says that he is a lifelong resident of the Gold Coast, attending the Ogden School and graduating from the Francis W. Parker School.

On the right is Ioana Salajanu, a partner with Rock Fusco & Connelly, LLC, who is bidding, according to her campaign website, to become Cook County's first ever Romanian-born judge. I've added Salajanu's campaign website to the blog Sidebar as well; she also has a Facebook campaign page.

Salajanu was licensed in Illinois in 2000. Her firm biography notes that Salajanu did her undergraduate work at the University of Michigan, taking her B.A. in 1996. Her principal areas of practice, according to the Rock Fusco site, are commercial finance, corporate transactions, commercial litigation and real estate. Her campaign Facebook page notes that she was born in Oradea, Romania, immagrating to the United States in 1983. She lives in Skokie, where she is raising three children.

Her campaign website specifies that she intends to seek a seat in the 9th Subcircuit. And her Facebook campaign page contains photographic proof that State Rep. Lou Lang, who doubles as Niles Township Committeeman, attended her April 18 campaign kickoff. That's not necessarily an endorsement -- and Salajanu's Facebook page carefully notes that her reception was attended by supporters and Rep. Lang -- but it certainly is a feather in the cap of a first-time candidate.

There's just one problem... is there a 9th Subcircuit vacancy yet? Whose?

Wow, 8 and 2 are going to be too fun. Especially if more countywides don't open up. But alas, July is just around the corner. And Charlie, Anne and Marijuana are the never ending source of humor when it comes to appointments.
