RE: Progressive Advocacy on Cook County Judges

An earlier comment from this post :
All of these Judges are Black. Is the Alderman in support of removing them from their seats?
Response from the Alderman who said she's been busy with the Hudson murders and City Hall budget hearings:
The recommendations I made and passed out on a sample ballot encourage the voters to vote for each of these Black Judges.  It is always interesting to see the main stream media routinely recommend and endorse Judges who are disrespectful to Black litigants, abusive to Black lawyers, and generally unwilling or too lazy to keep abreast of the changes in the law.  As a result I usually discount most of their recommendation regarding Black Judges.  While there is at least one Black Judge on my list that needs to work on their performance those shortcomings are not sufficient to call for that person's removal from the bench.
There you have it!
