Candidates interested in an endorsement from the Chicago Federation of Labor

This election cycle, the CFL will consider primary endorsements for candidates running for Metropolitan Water Reclamation District Commissioner and candidates for the following Cook County positions: State’s Attorney, Clerk of the Circuit Court, Board of Review District 3, County Commissioner District 1; and judicial candidates for the Cook County Circuit Court Judges, and candidates for the Subcircuit of Cook County.
