JOY CUNNINGHAM RECEIVES MORE OPPORTUNITIES FOR SUPPORT AND MAJOR POLITICAL ENDORSEMENTS FOR ILLINOIS SUPREME COURT
From The news blog 'And The Ordinary People Said' by veteran political activist Mark Allen at www.chicagonow.com
The historic campaign of Illinois Appellate Court Justice Joy Cunningham for Illinois Supreme Court kicked off with the powerful political powers like Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle, U.S. Congressman Danny Davis, and Secretary of State Jesse White. 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 is with great pride that Justice Cunningham humbly received three recent endorsements: 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 to the historic pride that Black groups feel when they know that the election of Cunningham makes history as she would be the first Black female to be elected, following the historic footsteps of Illinois Supreme Court Justice as the first Black male elected to The Illinois Supreme Court.
The Independent Voters of Illinois-Independent Precinct Organization (IVI-IPO) announced its county-wide endorsements and Justice Cunningham was endorsed by this important organization which promotes fairness and honesty in all levels of state government.
And more breaking news this week, John Tully another candidate, has withdrawn his bid for the Illinois Supreme Court, and with fewer candidates running, it is now more important than ever to get the word out about the campaign of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 Joy Virginia Cunningham for Illinois Supreme Court. Remind everyone you know to vote in the Democratic Primary: MARCH 20, 2012. Stay tuned for even more developments on the campaign from the website www.joycunninghamforjuctice.com
