Noreen Connolly campaign website launched; will seek 10th Subcircuit vacancy

Noreen Connolly, Associate General Counsel at Verizon Communications, has announced her intention to seek a 10th Subcircuit vacancy. Her campaign website was recently launched. That's a link to the site in the preceding sentence; a link has also been added to the blog Sidebar.

Connolly has been licensed as an attorney in Illinois since 1994, according to ARDC. Her campaign bio notes that she began her legal career in the Chicago Corporation Counsel's office, moving next to Arthur Andersen, where she was involved in "tax-related engagements, including tax technology/automation, planning, compliance and outsourcing engagements." In 2003, Connolly moved to Accenture, working with its U.S., State and Local Government Client Group, according to her campaign bio. She joined Verizon in 2008.

On the personal side, Connolly's campaign website stresses her Chicago roots, "the seventh of seven children of a Chicago fire chief and a hard-working full time mom." The campaign website notes that, in addition to her undergraduate work at the University of Illinois, and her attendance at IIT-Chicago-Kent Law School, Connolly also found time to study at University College, Galway. The campaign website also notes that Connolly has been active with Misericordia. A search of my archives suggests that this may be Connolly's first attempt at seeking judicial office.
