  1. These polls mean very little.

    ISBA membership is in serious decline due to all their left wing politicking and policies on illegal aliens, transgenderism, special gay rights, anti-2nd Amendment positions, anti-Trump propaganda, etc.

  2. What a surprise!

    Frank’s has supported McClellan.

    Birds of a feather….

  3. These polls mean very little.

    Look at the categories: “Sensitivity”. Yeah, right, Catch and release tearjerkers get high marks

    “Health” How the hell does the rather know that?

    “Court Management” Ok, how the hell does somebody who’s not an incumbent judge even get a grade? See what I mean —-total rubbish. People ‘imagine’ how’d they manage their courtroom?

    “Meets Requirements of Office”. Here they are: live in the dist. your running in and have a law degree and be licensed in IL. I assume it also means you can’t be a felon and must be a US Citizen, but who knows nowadays.

    So how can people be getting low grades on this? Are they living outside their districts like Rezin? Did they get disbarred? Did they have a phony Law Degree like that Chinese guy in California who practiced for 40 years?

    Most of the judges in McHenry Co. Do a subpar job. Chmiel was censured, should have been kicked off the Bench for being a lying Bob Miller scamboy. A few judges are truly terrible.

    But the one thing everybody (except Mary Nader, McClellan’s go-to grinch) can agree on is that Mary McClellan would be a disaster.

    An unmitigated disaster.

    She’d have so many motions to exclude her as the judge, she’d sit in her chambers all day playing solitaire and making up stuff about her list of enemies, which is now over 2 miles long! That is if she showed up at all like she didn’t when she was County Clerk

    Read about her corruption. It’s pretty recent. Not like Chmiel’s.

  4. This is a bunch of dummy lawyers voting for homecoming king and queen.

    As stated above, the categories are juvenile and don’t reflect someone who is not already on the bench.

    Court management….give me a break.

    Sensitivity….snowflake lawyers,

    Health…..how the hell do these unqualified raters know the health of anyone they are rating?

    This survey needs an overhaul by a qualified person.

    Do they really think we will follow their ratings when we go to the booth?

    The guy in jail for allegedly killing his kid probably got to rate these people?

  5. Survey definitely needs an overhaul! Who in their right mind is going to tell a sitting judge they are not qualified?

    Yes it is suppose to be anonymous but do things get leaked?

    All the time in this corrupt state!

    ut the Dems are putting 3 inexperienced women forward because they are women!

    Women do need to hold more corporate and other positions but not just because you are a woman.

    The worst part is that the women that do have the experience are looked over and the ones that don’t, get into higher positions whether in the corporate or political world.

    Jeannie Ives is one of the smartest and strongest women in our state but Lauren Underwood is elected!

    Hopefully Ives wins her primary and goes on to get rid of Casten!

    But Catalina Lauf has no experience and Sue Rezin hasn’t been much of a good State Senator either.

    Marter is the most seasoned person with the best experience and knowledge to do what is right but just can’t raise any funds.

    Oberweiss is just buying his wherever he ends up on the ballot.
