People often don't know enough when they vote for the judges. Who sits in that judge's chair is important. The decisions they make can change lives. When we vote for judge on Nov. 6, one candidate stands out from his competition. His name is John Dalton.

John Dalton worked hard in school, and it bore results. He graduated at the top of his class at Augustana College and earned admission to one of the finest law schools in the country, the University of Illinois, where he again graduated at the top of his class and won a long list of awards for his academic achievement, including: associate editor of the U of I Law Review, prizes for Civil Procedure and Trial Advocacy, and the Order of the Coif (National Law School Honor Society), among others.

In his 25 years as a prominent trial attorney, John was an associate at a world-class law firm -- Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom -- spent nearly a decade in court with Rothschild, Barry & Myers, the same firm that produced Supreme Court Justice Stevens. He also worked in the law department at Sears, and was a Senior Vice President and Associate General Counsel at a global bank. Mr. Dalton currently a law firm here in Elgin, where he represents all sorts of clients in a wide variety of matters, from the simple to the enormously complex.

Dalton also finds time to serve his community as a trustee at ECC, as a deacon in his church, and he volunteers at countless local charities. Dalton was recommended for Associate Judge by the Kane County Bar Association in 2011, and was an Arbitration Chairman for 10 years, so he has experience managing a courtroom and deciding cases. Dalton is extremely well qualified to serve as our next circuit court judge.
