We Need Your Help Now More Than Ever
It’s official: There has never been more at stake for the future of
our country than right now. Medicare, Social Security, voting rights,
women’s rights, minority rights, public education, and our most vulnerable
citizens are under attack. Income inequality, already a huge problem,
is getting worse by the day. Both nationally and at the state and local
level, the middle class and working people are under attack. Progressive
values are under attack.
But you can help us
In 2016, Democratic candidates in Lake County did very well. All of
our Democratic elected officials were re-elected, we gained a U.S. Senator
and a Congressman. We also picked up a county-wide office and Hillary
kicked butt. You can help us do even better next time.
We are already planning for 2018, when winning Congressional elections
will be vital to protect our rights from Donald Trump and the Republicans
in Washington. And we’ll be working for a governor candidate to finally
remove Illinois from the clutches of another uncaring billionaire.
The Lake County Democratic Party works towards these goals by attracting
and training good Democratic candidates, holding events, recruiting
precinct committeemen to get out the Democratic vote, providing information
about issues and much more.
We need your help to transform this county and this country into one
where the vital needs of people come first. Will you help?
