It’s a big leap from Associate Judge to the Illinois Supreme Court, but Lake County Associate Judge Elizabeth Rochford wants to make it.
She filed papers last week to run in the Democratic Party primary with the Illinois State Board of Elections.
First appointed in 2012, she has handled divorce, probate, other civil and criminal cases.
Prior to her appointment she worked for the State’s Attorney’s Office before going out on her own.
She has served as President of the Lake County Bar Association.
Rochford is sixty years old.
