The Clerk of the Court’s office is ground zero of corruption, fraud, and waste in Cook County government.  The current Clerk runs a patronage den, collects political contributions from employees and sells jobs for cash.

It’s time to acknowledge that not all Democrats are the same — that those who make a career of selling-out government for personal profit are a danger to us all and that the Democratic party must embrace true reform and say, never again.

I am Jacob Meister. I’m the progressive reform candidate for Cook County Clerk of the Circuit Court and I hope you’ll join me in my fight to bring reform to the Clerk’s office.

Spend an hour with the energetic Meister and you come away convinced: He knows how to fix this office and has the passion to do it.

Meister has litigated cases across the country and knows first-hand what an efficient court system looks like. We like his common-sense plan…

Jacob’s Plan

The Clerk of Court’s job is to make sure that the court system is accessible, navigable, and efficient for all stakeholders, with minimal bureaucratic or political interference.

Watch – A Progressive Reformer

Restoring Trust in our Court System!

Jacob will fight to:

  • End decades of corruption and neglect at the Clerk’s office.
  • Run an independent office without the influence of machine politics.
  • Overhaul current technology with a modern case management system.
  • Ensure that litigants who don’t have a lawyer can navigate bureaucracy.
  • Make the Clerk’s office accessible to working families.
  • Be an active voice for social justice.
  • Reduce wasted court time for police officers, resulting in more police time on the streets in our communities.
