Diane Shapiro, with over 30 years of Cook County government experience, will match up against Dorothy Brown for the office of Clerk of the Circuit Court. Lori Yokoyama, an attorney and entrepreneur, is challenging Anita Alvarez for Cook County State's Attorney. Sales consultant Sherri Griffith is taking on Karen Yarborough for the office of Cook County Recorder of Deeds.
"Thanks to the monumental efforts of our Committeemen and volunteer base, the Chicago Republican Party is excited to have three outstanding, highly-qualified candidates for Cook County office," said Adam Robinson, Chairman of the Chicago Republican Party. "Our Cook County candidates reflect the growing diversity of our party here in Chicago and the desire on the part of Chicago voters for a real alternative. We look forward to a spirited, issues-driven campaign this fall."
