Welcome to Mary McClellan's Website! 

Mary McClellan announces running for McHenry County Circuit Judge 2018

Having been involved in McHenry County since 1989, I have long worked for a positive difference in McHenry County.
I have always been very concerned about the community. I believe there are workable solutions available that will enhance fiscal responsibility.

I have a strong belief in representing the people not my own interest.  I follow the law and uphold the Constitution of the United States and the Illinois Constitution.  I have experience in small business budgets and multimillion dollar budgets.  I have experience managing large groups of people and I am a successful leader. I am running to guarantee equal access to justice for all citizens.

My story is simple but true and demonstrates why I am the best person for the job.  As a young girl my dream was always to be a judge.  I did not think I would be able to realize my dream but never let that stop me from pursuing that dream.  I was a single mom who moved to McHenry in 1989 I met my husband the guy next door.  I took my first class at McHenry County College in math on my way to furthering my education.  I realized how much I enjoyed the challenge of returning to school and wanted to obtain my degree.  I realized one class a semester it would take a long time to obtain my degree. I decided to take 3 classes a semester, work full time and be a mother and a wife.  It required dedication and commitment.  I finished my Associate’s Degree from McHenry County College and went on to pursue my Bachelor's degree in Business.  While I was obtaining my Bachelor's degree I met a young woman who worked with me at a Construction Company for the summer.  As we discussed our future goals I realized that the law had always been an area in which I had a great desire to be involved in, it was through this persons inspiration that I sought out what it would take to go to law school.  I applied to law school and was accepted.  I worked full time and attended law school in the evening.  All along being a mom and a wife.  Mind you my husband was a very supportive person that made this task bearable.  It took me over ten years to finish school.  My story is that when you commit to something anything is possible.   It is this type of commitment that I offer the people of McHenry County. If elected I will give greater court outreach in our community.
