Lake Dems Are Front Page News

News & Notes

August 25, 2021

Lake Dems had a strong contingent in Springfield for the Illinois Democratic County Chairs’ Association Brunch and Governor’s Day at the Illinois State Fair. We volunteered, cheered, and ended up on the front page of the Chicago Tribune. What a memorable experience! And it’s not just fun–we’re really fired up to keep working to elect Democrats up and down the ballot in 2022.
