The historic campaign of Illinois Appellate Court Justice Joy Virginia Cunningham for Illinois Supreme Court kicked off with the powerful political players like Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle, U.S. Congressman Danny Davis, and Secretary of State Jesse White giving their endorsements.

With that big kickoff, Cunningham did not sit back, but hit the streets with a very aggressive organizing campaign that with each week, brings even more significant opportunities for support as well as new significant political and constituent endorsements.

It's with great pride that Justice Cunningham humbly received three recent endorsements as well: Latin American Police Association (LAPA), Chicago Teachers Union (CTU), and The Coalition of Black Trade Unionists. Those diverse endorsements send an even stronger message that Cunningham represents a fair, independent and qualified judiciary. In addition, the historic pride that these groups feel when they know that the election of Cunningham makes history as the first Black female to be elected to the Illinois Supreme Court.

And The Independent Voters of Illinois-Independent Precinct Organization (IVI-IPO) announced its county-wide endorsements of Justice Cunningham.

And more breaking news, John Tully another candidate, has withdrawn his bid for the Illinois Supreme Court, and with fewer candidates running, it is now more important than ever to get the word out about the campaign of Illinois Appellate Court Justice Cunningham for Illinois Supreme Court.

  1. I am not surprised about the endorsement from the Latino police department, especially if this is the same Joy Cunningham that wrote the opinion in the case, Jane Doe vs. Hoffman Estates, where she sided with police officers, giving them tort immunity, over that matter in which the police's actions allowed a sexual predator to gain employment at a high school, where that person ultimately sexually molested five girl students who were special needs ? The police did not warn the school or the parents and as a result, five lives, five families, are shattered. Yet, she let the police and the Village of Hoffman Estates off the hook.
    I don't see how she sleeps at night.
