To All Voters in the 12th Judicial Subcircuit,

As Election Day approaches, I want to tell you about a great candidate, David Studenroth, who is running for my vacant judicial seat. David has 30 years of courtroom experience.

He is a former Cook County Gang Crimes Prosecutor and every major Cook County bar association has found him “highly recommended” and “qualified” to serve as a judge.

As former Mayor of Arlington Heights and former Presiding Judge of the Rolling Meadows Courthouse, I can honestly tell you that David is an excellent candidate in the race. That is the reason that I agreed to join his team as Co-Chairman of his campaign committee.

David is widely supported by many members of the legal community. I am respectfully asking you to do the same by voting for David Studenroth, candidate for Judge in the Circuit Court of Cook County, 12th Judicial Subcircuit. He is located at punch #122 on the ballot.
