I am Jeff Braiman, Mayor of Buffalo Grove and candidate for Lake County's 3rd Judicial Subcircuit.
The independence and integrity of our judicial system is of the utmost importance. Should any of us have to appear before a judge, we all want to know that the judge will listen to the facts at hand and make a fair decision that is independent from any outside influences.
My campaign has refused donations from lawyers, law firms, special interests, interested supporters, and even the democratic party. I have made this decision because I do not believe it is right for politics and money to mingle with the sanctity of our judiciary.
This may mean that my campaign is underfunded, and as we all know in politics, it may mean that I lose this election. That being said, I am confident that I made the right decision. No matter the outcome of this election, my campaign has taken a stand to protect the integrity and independence of our judicial system.
If you agree with me that judicial candidates should not accept campaign donations, and if you want a judge that has independence and integrity, I ask that you vote for me, Jeff Braiman, to be your judge.
