I am seeking election in the February 2010 Republican Primary. With your help and support I will continue to serve this court.

Appellate Court Second District
Daily Herald:
Judge announces run for appellate court
Support Justice Mary Schostok

I have been a judge for nearly 20 years, serving the people of DuPage County as a judge in the 18th Judicial Circuit. In July 2008, it was my privilege to be appointed by the Illinois Supreme Court to the Illinois Appellate Court - Second District. I am seeking election to the Appellate Court to keep the seat to which I was unanimously appointed by the Illinois Supreme Court.
My career began many years ago when my husband and I chose this community to make our home and raise our children. As a young lawyer I joined the DuPage County State’s Attorney’s Office to prosecute criminal cases, champion the rights of victims and enhance the public safety in the neighborhoods that make up your community and mine.
As a trial judge in DuPage County I served in the civil and criminal courts and supervised our Mandatory Arbitration Program. I was appointed as the Presiding Judge of the Felony Division in 1997. During my term, I saw an opportunity to address the cycle of drug addiction and crime. With the cooperation of other departments we instituted the DuPage County Drug Court Program. Drug Court offers non-violent addicted offenders rigorous treatment, intense supervision and rehabilitation. I assumed the role as the first Presiding Judge of the DuPage County Drug Court and served there until 2007. I am very proud of the Drug Court and what has been accomplished.
In 2002, I was honored to be elected President of the Illinois Judge’s Association. In 2005 my fellow Circuit Judges elected me to serve as the Chief Judge in DuPage County, the second largest court system in the State of Illinois. There are 42 Circuit and Associate Judges in DuPage County. As Chief Judge I oversaw the administration of 40 criminal, civil and domestic relations courts; as well as the Department of Probation and Court services, Court Reporters, electronic recording, Public Defender’s Office, 275 employees and a budget over 20 million dollars.
Through out my career in the circuit court, it has been my life long commitment to promote the efficiency and effectiveness of our courts and to assist those who come to the court for resolution and justice.
In my current position as an Appellate Court Judge, I will continue to work to enhance our courts, preserve the rule of law and foster the principles of fairness and integrity, which are the cornerstone of our justice system.
I am asking for your support and YOUR VOTE on February 2, 2010.
