Almost 300 applicants for six vacancies? I think this shoots down the complaint that arises every several years that judicial salaries are inadequate. Yes, there are a great many on this list who feed from the public trough (States Attorney, Public Defender, Corporation Counsel, other county or local governmental agency) as well as many with politically favored surnames BUT there are also a fair number of private practitioners. If all these categories are seeking a judicial sinecure then it must be an attractive and comfortable position to have.
I trust the selection will at least take into account the applicant's experience, unlike Gov. Rauner's appointment of the 22 year old law student as state representative to fill a vacancy.
