David Gill for Congress

Democratic County Chairs in the 15th Congressional District received the following announcement this morning (6/3/2009) from David Gill.

After a great deal of thought, I have decided to run once again for our 15th District seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. While I failed to win the seat in 2004 and 2006, I made a great deal of progress, with the help of many people throughout the district. I relocated to McLean County in 2007, and I am very excited about the prospects of victory in 2010.

Dr. Gill has been considering this for some time, and has been working to develop a strategy for victory in 2010. All “Friends of Gill” can reach him at

Petitions for David Gill will generally be available for signature at all Champaign County Democratic events this fall, such as the Urbana Farmers Market each Saturday morning.
