Evanston, IL – Community supporters of Judge Lionel Jean-Baptiste joined him to kick off his campaign for judicial retention of his seat on the 9th Subcircuit of Cook County. The event was held Sunday, July 24 at the Levy Center, 300 Dodge Ave., Evanston, IL.

Supporter Dr. Curtis Webley said of the Judge, “As an Alderman for the city of Evanston, Lionel Jean-Baptiste gave hope to the hopeless; inspired the neighborhood adults and children; crossed all barriers and boundaries in an effort to seek and solidify racial and economic equality for all people. Lionel Jean-Baptiste is a person whose family values remain unmatched; he helps those who are destitute even when it requires personal sacrifices. He is a candidate whose law practice became a charitable organization as he reached out to the less fortunate. A highly qualified and experienced candidate, Lionel Jean-Baptiste models integrity and high morals, and seeks equality and justice for all.”
