Ms. Manak's unique life experiences and 20 years of practicing law in Lake County make her exceptionally qualified to serve as a judge. We need real experience, new perspectives, and increased transparency in the Lake County courthouse.
Ms. Manak, who was a former supervisor in the office of the Lake County Public Defender, is currently the first woman and first person of color to serve as the First Assistant in the Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office. She will be the first woman of color to serve as a judge in Lake County.
