At the January monthly meeting of the Hamilton County Republican Party called by Chairman John Chapman, the members present proposed and voted to endorse Candidate Courtney Cox in the 2020 Illinois Primary for 2nd Circuit Judge.
Courtney is a Former United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, and a very proud husband, father, and grandfather.
The members of the committee all agreed that Cox brings a background filled with diverse legal experience to the position.
“I was honored to serve the people of Southern Illinois as United States Attorney in the Bush administration. As U.S. Attorney, I was successful in focusing the resources of the law enforcement community on prosecuting illegal drug distribution, government corruption, child pornographers and other federal crimes.” Courtney Cox
Cox was sworn-in as U.S. Attorney in 2007 by the Federal District Court and served as the chief law enforcement officer and prosecutor for the Southern District of Illinois, working closely with local, state and federal law enforcement officials.
Under his leadership, the office successfully prosecuted the former Gallatin County Sheriff who was convicted of selling drugs while in office.
Cox says he is staunchly committed to the rule of law and upholding the U.S. and Illinois Constitutions.
Cox will rely on his experience as a prosecutor and private sector attorney to fairly serve every citizen of the 2nd Judicial Circuit.
Illinois’ 2nd Judicial Circuit encompasses Crawford, Edwards, Franklin, Gallatin, Hamilton, Hardin, Jefferson, Lawrence, Richland, Wabash, Wayne, and White Counties.
As someone I have known for several years, I have known him to be a very trustworthy, honest and a very fair individual. Courtney is very knowledgeable in what he does. I highly encourage all the citizens of Hamilton County to vote for Courtney Cox March 17th in the Hamilton County Primary." Chairman John Chapman
The Hamilton County Republican Party is proud to endorse Courtney Cox for 2nd Circuit Judge, and encourages all the citizens of Hamilton County to cast their vote in his favor as they head to the polls for early voting.
