Here Comes The Judge.

Let me be frank. In the last two elections, I voted for Judges who I had absolutely no clue who they were and/or what they stood for, or how they operated their courts. The only Judge I’ve ever had the misfortune of standing before was Judge Cary B. Pierce out in DuPage County on traffic tickets. And I’ll tell, I never want to do that again.

But this year, I have a vested interest in the Judges up for election. So, I’ve done a bit of research. Here’s who I’m voting for this year. This, of course, pertains to Cook County, Illinois. You can check out these Judges and their websites at http://www.illinoisjudges.net/
