Tenth Subcircuit Democratic Committeemen have named criminal defense attorney Stephanie Saltouros as their candidate for the Howard vacancy in that subcircuit, bypassing Judge Eve M. Reilly, who was appointed to that vacancy by the Illinois Supreme Court.
According to an FWIW source who was present for the slating meeting, held Monday night in the banquet hall of Moretti's Ristorante & Pizzeria in Edison Park, Saltouros, Reilly and five others (Deidre Baumann; Richard G. Cenar, Jr.; James Patrick Crawley; Colleen Reardon Daly; and Katherine A. O'Dell) sought the endorsement.
In addition to slating Saltouros, the 10th Subcircuit Slating Committee, chaired by 41st Ward Committeeman Mary O'Connor, named Judge Reilly as first alternate. This means that the Democratic committeemen in the 10th Subcircuit have voted not to support Judge Reilly if she runs to keep the seat she now holds, but if another 10th Subcircuit vacancy opens up in time for the 2016 Primary, the Party will support Reilly for that vacancy.
