A Weekend of Celebrations

With Libertyville Days and Indian Independence Day, it was a weekend to celebrate in Lake County. The Libertyville Days parade on Saturday was amazing and the warm reception really showed how much we’ve been able to change things over the years from what was once considered a Republican stronghold to a more Democratic area. On Sunday, Congressman Brad Schneider and State Representative Dan Didech joined the Indian Independence Day celebration in Vernon Hills, commemorating India’s independence from the United Kingdom. What a great summer weekend, Democrats!
