Fill in the ballot: Candidates for EVERY Office
Throughout the state of Illinois, there will be empty ballot positions on the June 28, 2022 Democratic primary ballot. These are missed opportunities! How can we encourage qualified progressive neighbors to step up and run for public office? This is particularly challenging when members of the opposite party are often intimidating and the chance of winning in a rural area can feel nearly impossible. On May 11, two Illinois leaders, both from very small towns, will share ideas on how to begin to build a public profile prior to running for office. Join us to hear from our State Treasurer, Michael Frerichs, and Cindy Cunningham, candidate for the 104th Illinois State House. They will share their insights and experiences on running for office in deep red areas of Illinois.
