Is there an attorney in McHenry County who would like pretty regular hours?
Is there an attorney in McHenry County who would like to earn about $185,000, plus health and retirement benefits?
Is there an attorney who could afford to drop $100-$200,000 into a Republican primary campaign?
If so, running to replace Circuit Court Gordon Graham may be your cup of tea.
Of course, an interim judge will be appointed and he or she will have the advantage of incumbency.
That judge will be appointed by the Illinois Supreme Court.
In reality, it will be appointed by the Supreme Court Justice from this district–Justice Robert Thomas.
Who will he ask for advice?
Certainly one person will be Judge Michael Chmiel, whom he originally appointed.
My guess is that Chmiel will be finding that he has a lot of new friends.
