“Let’s Talk Politics” in Mundelein Reveals Optimism for 2020 Elections

Democrats came out on November 19th to talk about politics at Park Street Restaurant in Mundelein. The evening, part of Tenth Dems University’s Let’s Talk Politics (LTP) series, was co-sponsored with Fremont Township Democrats whose Chair, Matt Lowry, was there along with TDU Chair Oren Jacobson, Tenth Dems founder/Lake Dems Vice Chair Lauren Beth Gash, Tenth Dems Co-Chair Eric Herman, Lake County Treasurer Holly Kim, and other elected officials.

TDU’s Laurence Schiller introduced the LTP series and started things off by asking what folks thought of the previous night’s Democratic presidential debate. The conversation bounced from the debate to Donald Trump’s looming impeachment and senate trial and their impacts on the 2020 elections, to the importance of state legislative races, how to bring young voters to the polls, and more.

It was all loose and lively, yielding quite a few intriguing analyses and predictions but, interestingly, very little of the frustration and bewilderment expressed so often recently by the many folks who have been disturbed and offended by Trump’s presidency. There was confidence in the room that Democrats are playing the right cards now, that if we continue to work together and we get out the vote, we can right this ship.

And one thing was very clear: people are fired up to elect a Democrat for President!

Chip In And Help Us Elect Democrats At The Grassroots Level!

It’s pretty simple: We want to keep the momentum we saw in the Blue Wave of 2018 as we head into the crucial 2020 elections. That costs money–we have rent for offices throughout the 10th District, electric and phone bills, and much more. But we’re a local, all-volunteer, grassroots group that gets things done because of folks like you, so please chip in. Every bit counts.

Help elect and support Democrats at the grassroots level.

In a perfect world, Trump and the Republicans would be no match for our candidates but it’ll take a lot of work to earn the victories our country needs. Help us get the message out and support our Democratic candidates in 2020 by clicking here to make sure we can keep up with the right-wing billionaires and special interests.

Notary Night, Legal Look-over, and Petition Collection

WHEN: Monday, November 18; 6:30 to 8:30 PM

WHERE: Lake County Federation of Teachers Hall, 248 Ambrogio Drive, Gurnee

WHAT: An opportunity for Democratic activists, candidates, and precinct committeepeople to bring in petitions to be notarized, checked, and/or turned in. Notaries public will be on hand, as well as lawyers who can check petitions. You also can turn in your notarized petitions that are ready for our candidates.

Don’t have petitions? That’s OK. Come see grassroots politics in action. Chat with like-minded Democrats. Hear a little bit about what it means to be a precinct committeeperson or a grassroots activist. This isn’t just talk and it’s not scary — it’s the nuts and bolts of electing more public officials who share our values. Of course, we want them on the ballot, and they need valid petitions for that. That’s what the night is all about.

Any Democrats interested in taking a more active role in the 2020 elections are invited. If you can bring snacks or drinks, please let us know.

Sponsored by Tenth Dems, Sixth Dems, Fourteenth Dems, and Lake County Democrats.

Hope to see you there!
