Kaczmarek Makes Pledge That Future Payments of Election Judges Will Be More Timely

“As my first official act after assuming responsibility of elections, I pledge my commitment that future payments to election judges will be more timely,” said Kaczmarek, a Glen Ellyn Democrat.

The Daily Herald, Robert Sanchez,  reports the Following:

The checks finally are in the mail for more than 2,000 DuPage County election judges who have been waiting to be paid since November.

County Clerk Jean Kaczmarek said Friday she was “disappointed” to learn checks weren’t mailed until Thursday for judges who worked the fall election — and now that she oversees the election process, she pledged such delays won’t happen again.

The county board on Tuesday dissolved the long-troubled election commission and transferred its functions to the clerk’s office.

“As my first official act after assuming responsibility of elections, I pledge my commitment that future payments to election judges will be more timely,” said Kaczmarek, a Glen Ellyn Democrat.

Kaczmarek said she has served as an election judge in recent years, including during early voting and as a technical judge.

“I know firsthand that the day is long and the work is hard,” she said. “Judges deserve to be paid promptly.”
