Nathaniel Howse – Illinois Appellate Court Justice – was joined by dozens of supporters in Springfield today as he filed 26,000 signatures on his nominating petitions for the Illinois State Supreme Court. Justice Howse‘s name will appear on the March 17th, 2020 Primary Election Ballot.

“Justice Howse has continued to be the beacon of light that the justice system has heavily relied upon. I’m thrilled that he has filed his nominating petitions,” says Bishop Larry D. Trotter of the Sweet Holy Spirit Church of Chicago.

Justice Howse has been endorsed by many clergypersons, civic organizations, elected officials and others. Among the elected officials who have endorsed his candidacy are Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White and U.S. Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky

Nathaniel R. Howse has a proven track record protecting the civil rights of every Illinoisan. That commitment to justice has earned him broad support in communities across Cook County.

Secretary of State Jesse White fully endorses Justice Howse by stating, “His rulings have allowed victims to be properly restored, wrongdoers to be held accountable and allowed justice and common sense to prevail.”

Justice Howse, who is also seeking to become the 2nd African American elected to the Illinois Supreme Court, has long awaited this opportunity to further a career that has consistently achieved as the underdog.

“I am truly grateful, honored and blessed to have this opportunity to run for this particular office. I’ve always been regarded as the underdog throughout my professional travels. Therefore I will never take for granted the mindset and concerns of the people of the State of Illinois,” says Justice Howse

Justice Howse is a judge of the First District Appellate Court of Illinois. He was assigned to this position on August 10th, 2009. He was elected on November 6th, 2012 and his current term expires on December 4th 2022. He previously served on the Cook County Circuit Court.

Justice Howse received his A.B. and J.D. from Loyola University in Chicago. He was admitted to the practice of Law in 1976.

Howse adds, ‘The greatest gift a person can receive is a helping hand. I have attempted to pattern my life behind those unsung heroes who boldly gave their hands to help others in need. I will represent the people of Illinois with total honesty, integrity and compassion.”
