We are defenders of the criminally and administratively accused – that is our life. We live the law and we breathe the law. But every now and again, we each like to dabble in things that aren’t the law. We have a Life Outside Law.
One aspect of Laura‘s Life Outside Law is her involvement with Maine Township, and her service to its Town Board. For the past 16 years, Laura has served as a Trustee for her home Township, a Township that includes unincorporated areas of Park Ridge, Morton Grove, Niles, Glenview, Des Plaines, and Rosemont. Late last year, with the vacancy left by longtime-Supervisor Carol Teschky, Laura decided she would throw her hat in the “race” for Township Supervisor (think Township “Mayor”) in the April 2017 Consolidated Election. I put “race” in quotations because, the formidable opponent she is, nobody ran against Laura and she was elected unanimously on April 4, 2017.
After the joy of the election subsided, and the anticipation of governance grew, the elected candidates were sworn to uphold the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of Illinois in a ceremony on May 15. Of course we, as members of Laura’s team, weren’t going to miss out on that celebration, so when the day ended on Monday, we shut out the lights to the Law Offices of Laura J. Morask and we all took a field trip to the Maine Township Town Hall. In a very nice, succinct ceremony – moderated by our very own Supervisor Morask – Cook County Judge James Paul Pieczonka administered the oath of office to the newly-elected members of the Town Board, one-by-one, culminating with the swearing-in of the new Supervisor, our very own Laura Morask.
We here at LauraLaw are extremely proud of Laura, and we are excited for the residents of Maine Township. We know Laura will bring with her to Maine Township the same drive, dedication, and relentless attention to detail that she brings to her law practice.
