(Chicago) – Dorothy Brown, incumbent candidate for Clerk of the Circuit Court of Cook County, is picking up impressive endorsements in the run-up to the Illinois Primary Election on March 15, including support from Rev. Jesse Jackson, Dr. Clay Evans, Commissioner Frank Avila, 17th Ward Alderman David Moore, and even Mr. Tio Hardiman, a former campaign opponent.

“Dorothy Brown is a long distance runner, a public servant, who cares deeply about the communities of Cook County and the state,” Rev. Jackson voiced recently at an event he attended in honor of Rev. Dr. Clay Evans. The founder and president of the Rainbow PUSH Coalition and internationally recognized civil rights, human rights and political activist, added, “Dorothy Brown has earned our support.”

Rev. Dr. Evans, founder of Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church in Chicago, is a renowned civil rights activist with major influence throughout Cook County. Dr. Evans quickly added to Jackson’s endorsement of Dorothy Brown with his own. “RUN DOROTHY RUN! We need you at a time like this,” Dr. Evans said. “You have been doing an excellent job. We need you to stay and continue the job that you are doing; full speed ahead!”

Cook County Water Reclamation Commissioner Frank Avila joined in the outpouring of support for Dorothy Brown’s re-election as Clerk of the Circuit Court of Cook County, excitedly saying, “I am endorsing Dorothy Brown because she has been good for the people. She has a kind heart and a good spirit. She puts on workshops for the people so that they can gain a better understanding of the services of the Clerk’s Office,” the Commissioner noted. “Dorothy has always fought for justice and good government for everyone in Cook County.”

Chicago Alderman David Moore (17th Ward) added his endorsement of Dorothy Brown to the growing number of elected officials who want to return her to the office she has successfully held for four consecutive terms. “I support and endorse Dorothy Brown because she is the most qualified, competent and capable person to run the office of Clerk of the Circuit Court,” Ald. Moore said. “We must continue to put people over politics. Dorothy Brown is making a difference in our communities.

Dorothy Brown’s unparalleled record of achievements in the Clerk’s Office has even won the support and endorsement of Tio Hardiman, former executive director of CeaseFire Violence Interrupters, Inc., who at one time was her opponent in the campaign for Clerk of Court. Hardiman has expressed his plans to publicly endorse Brown, admitting that she is uniquely qualified for the position.

Since 2000, Clerk Brown has run the Office of the Clerk of the Circuit Court of Cook County, one of the largest court systems in the world.

During her tenure, Clerk Brown implemented Electronic Filing; built the innovative Clerk of Court mobile app that places court case information conveniently on user’s mobile devices; managed the full-scale scanning and electronic storing of almost 200 million digital images of court documents; and installed interactive Digital Access Terminals throughout the Clerk’s Office for public use to view and/or print imaged court documents. Clerk Brown also initiated several online services that make Clerk’s Office services more accessible for citizens, such as: an Online Traffic Ticket Payment Service, an Unclaimed Child Support Search, an Online Orders of Protection Service, and the Mortgage Foreclosure Surplus Search program that helps qualifying people learn about and recover cash surpluses from property lost to foreclosure.

Additionally, Clerk Brown’s Second Chance Expungement Summits, which she created and has presented for 11 consecutive years in Cook County, are nationally recognized for the life-changing services provided to citizens and the positive impact made on communities. In response to requests by counties throughout the nation seeking advice on producing similar “second chance” events, Clerk Brown produced the “Expungement Summit Guide,” an instruction booklet for other jurisdictions.
