Lake County Illinois 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 2016 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?

Howland shares my values
I am voting for Amanda Howland for Congress in the 6th District on Nov. 8. I share her values regarding tax reform, health care, mental health and suicide prevention. I have a special needs child, and she has worked to make life better for those with challenges. She is behind the middle class which is suffering right now. Amanda stands for women's rights. As a woman, I offer her my enthusiastic support.
