Endorsements for circuit and appellate judgeships

Circuit judgeships

For Republican voters, Associate Judge Michael T. Caldwell is endorsed over State's Attorney Gary Pack in the McHenry-Lake County race to fill the vacancy left by the retirement of Thomas Schermerhorn. Caldwell is widely respected inside and outside the circuit, and won a ringing endorsement from lawyers in a recent Illinois State Bar Association, while Pack was not recommended.

Pack has the legal experienceandshowed great enthusiasm for the job, too. The judiciary could be his future, but not this time.

In the GOP campaign to fill the Thomas Schermerhorn vacancy, Mary Schostok, appointed to the circuit bench a year ago, is endorsed for the Republican nomination over attorney Robert B. Morton.

In one 16th Circuit race, appointed Judge Bob Spence of Batavia gets the nod over self-employed lawyer Joseph M. Grady of Aurora in the Kane County race to replace the retired Thomas Hogan. Spence, who was appointed to the associate's post last August by the state Supreme Court, has extensive experience with the Kane and DuPage County state's attorney's offices and the Illinois attorney general's office. His poor showing in the Illinois State and Kane County bar association polls is attributable, we believe, to his past prosecution history (he has the endorsement of many lawenforcementagencies) and some fears that he may let his conservative politics influence his legal judgment in the courtroom. Those views are speculative at this point and not a good enough reason to reject him. …
