Now is the time to demonstrate our united support for the strong ticket which can and will win in November. On June 1, candidates and activists will come together at the Laborers’ Hall in Urbana, Illinois for the spring dinner of the Champaign County Democratic Party. Confirmed speakers at this point include Lieutenant Governor Candidate Paul Vallas, State Treasurer Candidate Mike Frerichs, Congressional Candidates Ann Callis (13th) and Eric Thorsland (15th), and State Representative Candidate Carol Ammons (103rd).
Other prominent candidates and potential speakers include U.S. Senator Dick Durbin, Governor Pat Quinn, Secretary of State Jesse White, Attorney General Lisa Madigan, and Comptroller Candidate Sheila Simon. Watch this site for the latest information as it becomes available.
As always, proceeds from this event will be used for our local operating expenses and for GOTV efforts which benefit all candidates. This dinner is an opportunity for unions, progressive groups, and all local Democrats to exchange views with our candidates as they begin their general election campaigns.
