Statement on Democrats’ Plan to Change the Rules to Elect More Judges

State Representative Amy Elik (R-Fosterburg) issued the following statement concerning her opposition to Illinois legislative Democrats’ plan to be debated this evening that will result in creating more judgeships for Democrats:

“The legislative Democrats’ plan to create judicial subcircuits in Madison County is all about securing more Democrat judgeships. This plan adds more politics in the courtroom and seriously threatens the fairness and integrity of the judiciary. I will be voting against this plan which changes the rules to give Democrats a competitive advantage when running for judge in our state.”
