AFSCME Sub-chapter 161
We will meet again at Ruby Tuesdays Restaurant at 5203 Old Orchard Road, Skokie, Il. on Wednesday, 20th of January. The meeting starts at 11 AM.
This meeting’s speaker is Judge Gerald Esrig. He will be addressing the importance of the Judges we’ll elect in November. While we know the career histories of state legislators and governors, few of us are familiar with the career track of lawyers who are elected or appointed to the bench.
Since Senate Bill 1 became a law and was overturned by the Illinois Supreme Court, retirees have had a dramatic lesson in the role played by the courts.
Six of us attended the political conference in Springfield on January 9th. We will have a report and provide papers from the workshop.
