Honestly, I don’t remember the first time I met Scott Frankel. It may have been on the Beye School playground. He played hockey with my husband for a few years. And he and his wife Laurie used to host a drop-by party on New Year’s Day. Our kids are the same ages and we have been neighbors for nearly 20 years. But I will tell you this: He is a good solid person with ethics, integrity, and a kind, gentle heart. Scott is sharp, thoughtful, and inquisitive.

Scott Frankel is running in the Democratic primary for Judge of the 11th Subcircuit of Cook County. He has 30 years of experience as a lawyer. He has been a public defender and owned his own firm. He has served in death penalty cases and cases in federal court. He even represented me in traffic court — and we won! 

He has received the highest rankings from the Chicago Bar Association and the Women’s Bar Association of Illinois. He has the qualities and experience you would expect in a judge. But this is why you should vote for him: Scott has a passionate belief in the American judicial system. He believes that everyone deserves the right to a fair trial. He knows that our legal system was created for all of us. I can’t think of anyone I would support more as a candidate for judge. 

Scott Frankel has my vote. And he should have yours too.
