Fundraiser tomorrow for Justice Neville

Supporters of Justice P. Scott Neville, Jr.'s bid to remain on the Illinois Supreme Court have announced a kick-off reception for their candidate tomorrow, June 26, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., at Taste 222, 222 N. Canal Street.

A lengthy list of "special guests" has been announced for this event. On the list are several Democratic ward and township committeemen, Toni Preckwinkle (4th), Leslie Hairston (5th), Roderick Sawyer (6th), Gregory Mitchell (7th), Michelle Harris (8th), Michael Madigan (13th), David Moore (17th), Matt O'Shea (19th), Kevin Bailey (20th), Howard Brookins (21st), Michael Scott (24th), Walter Burnett (27th), Jason Ervin (28th), Sean Tenner (46th), Robert Steffen (Barrington), Karen Yarbrough (Proviso), and Calvin Jordan (Rich). (Some of these folks have other titles, as you no doubt have noticed, but before the Democratic Party's slate is made, these titles are of paramount import.)

Two Congressmen, Bobby Rush and Danny Davis, are also among the announced special guests, as are Board of Review Commissioners Larry Rogers Jr. and Michael Cabonargi. Retired circuit judges or appellate justices on the list of special guests are John O. Steele, Marcus Salone, Pamela Veal, Bernetta Bush, Carl McCormick, Walter Williams, Sidney Jones, Marianne Jackson, and Judge Anthony Young.

Several present and former state legislators, a couple of aldermen, MWRD President Kari Steele, and MWRD Com. Kim DuBuclet are also among the announced special guests.

Tickets for the event are $250 each, but sponsorships are available (Host - $500, Sponsor - $1,000, Patron - $2,500, Chair - $5,800). Tickets are available online at this link. For more information about the event, email swapna@p2consultinginc.com.
