Lake County Democrats Welcome You

Perhaps at no time in our recent history is there more at stake than now. Medicare, Social Security and our most vulnerable citizens are under attack. The middle class is under attack. Progressive values are under attack. But you can help us fight back.

The 2014 election will bring a roster of outstanding Democratic candidates for office at the local and national level. Each one is dedicated to upholding the values which provide strength for our community, state and nation. And each candidate is committed to public service and brings a wealth of insight and experience.

The Democratic Party stands for people-oriented public policy... jobs, fiscal discipline, sensible foreign policy, national security, education, affordable health care, environmental protection, international cooperation and the participation of the public towards the goal of this country achieving its ultimate best.

The Lake County Democratic Party works towards these goals by helping democratic candidates, arranging events, assisting voters, providing information about issues and much more.

We need your help to transform this county and this country into one where the needs of its people come first. Will you help? Click here to volunteer.

Bush, Mayfield push for reversal of limits on child care subsidies
"Basically, if you are working today, you can't even get minimum wage and be able to get help," said Melinda Bush, speaking at a Grandwood Park Park District preschool in Gurnee. The reduced income eligibility rules tell some parents "we're going to make it more profitable for you to sit at home and collect a check off of the taxpayer," Rita Mayfield said.
