Hi neighbors, please get out and vote Democratic, Judge MICHAEL BENDER. He is a longtime friend and all around good person with compassion, ethics and integrity. He grew up in the area and attended Niles West High School. He is looking to fill the seat left vacant when his father Judge Gerald Bender passed. Please get out and vote for him today! Thank you!
