I am writing with great enthusiasm in support of Judge Mary Katherine Rochford, a Democratic candidate for the Cook County Appellate Court, South Vacancy.
I have known Judge Rochford both personally and professionally for more than twenty-five years. As a practicing attorney in Cook County, I have come to understand the qualities and traits that separate the great judges from the marginal ones. Judge Rochford clearly is one of the great ones.
I can say without reservation that Judge Rochford is one of our brightest and most thoughtful judges, and her work ethic is second to none. Her vast range of experience in 19 years as a trial judge far exceeds any of her opponents. All professional evaluations of Judge Rochford have been exemplary, now and throughout the past 19 years.
A vote for Mary Katherine Rochford is a vote for someone who is extremely competent, hardworking, and fair. The people of Cook County will be proud to have her serving our community as an Appellate Court Judge.
Please punch ballot No. 142 for Judge Rochford in the Feb. 2 Democratic primary election.
