47th Ward Democratic Orgainzation to screen judicial candidates on July 25

The 47th Ward Democratic Organization's Judicial Recommendation Committee has announced plans to screen countywide judicial hopefuls, and judicial candidates planning to file in the 6th, 8th, and 10th Subcircuits, on Tuesday, July 25.

Candidates will need to schedule a time for their presentations. To make an appointment, or for additional information about the screening meeting, email Rob Kern at Appointments need to be set up by July 19, Kern told FWIW.

In a press release, Committeeman Paul Rosenfeld stated that more than 20 well-qualified persons applied to serve on the Judicial Recommendation Committee showing "the importance of the 47th Ward in selecting new judges." The 47th Ward's Judicial Recommendation Committee consists of Committeeman Paul Rosenfeld, Michael Del Galdo, Steven Hart, Sandy Morris, Jim Erwin, Brendan Shiller, Jack Lydon, Coral Negron, David Saunders, Jay Edelson, Matthew Belcher, and Jennifer Russell.

Alas, to everyone's dismay, E.P. was not invited.

Too bad. I could've brought some serious enlightenment to that crowd.

As Always, E.P.

EP, don't waste your time going to the 47th do-si-do. You won't find a jibarito, let alone a decent taco stand, but more importantly, short of dragging in a huge sack of unmarked bills, there is nothing you can do to change the predetermined outcome.

Dough-eyed newbies will be told they were almost the committee's first choice, and if this just sit this one out, we promise it will be your turn in 2020.

Note: A promise of support in two years for sitting out an election is the first sign of dementia in committeemen. By the time 2020 rolls around, those committeemen who are not yet guests of the Bureau of Prisons will not even recognize you, but they will remember your address, because nothing helps lift the fog of senility like a fundraiser.
