LEARN HOW JUDGE PAT O'BRIEN
IS FIGHTING TO CLEAN UP COOK COUNTY

“At every step in the legal process, Kim Foxx has failed. And that failure has made our neighborhoods and communities less safe across all of Cook County.”

– Pat O’Brien

“The Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office is in a state of disarray. Criminals are free, and law-abiding citizens are prisoners in their homes.

The Cook County State’s Attorney needs to change, and I am the leader that offers that change to Restore Integrity and Order in the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office.”

– Pat O’Brien
