Candidate for 3rd District Appellate Court Judge Vicki Wright has recently gotten the strong endorsement of four key organizations,
- The Fraternal Order of Police -- Illinois State Lodge;
- The Associated Firefighters of Illinois;
- The Illinois Federation of Teachers
- The Illinois AFL-CIO.
"Judge Wright’s 15-year career on the bench reflects a strong commitment to integrity, fairness and professionalism. The Illinois AFL-CIO endorses her enthusiastically," said Margaret Blackshere, President of the Illinois AFL-CIO.
"In your 25 years of experience, you have developed a deep understanding of the law and you apply it consistently and equitably," said Rick Merrill, President of the Associated Firefighters of Illinois, which represents 14,500 active and retired professional union firefighters in the state. "As representatives of Illinois’ First Responders, we endorse your candidacy."
"Your commitment to public service and law enforcement is one that we believe strongly yields our support to your campaign," said Ted Street, State President of the Fraternal Order of Police – Illinois State Lodge.
"Judge Wright’s legal abilities, integrity and impartiality make her the best choice in the Third District Appellate campaign," said James Dougherty, President of the 90,000-member Illinois Federation of Teachers. "She has a significant edge over her opponent in terms of judicial experience, as well, and that is important given the court caseload."
"I think Judge Wright just hit a grand slam in her campaign for Third District Appellate Judge," said State Sen. Mike Jacobs, a Wright backer, commenting on the four big endorsements. "Her record as a hard working judge is now bringing these rewards because she earned it long before the campaign ever started."
