Happy New Year!

Thanks to all of you, I was elected Democratic Committeeman of the 43rd Ward in February 2008. We've accomplished a lot.
43rd Ward Democrats:

  • Registered more than 1,000 new 43rd Ward voters.
  • Delivered the 5th highest voter turn-out in the city!
  • Filled more than 150 Democratic Election Judge slots with a record number of 43rd Ward residents as judges.
  • Introduced Anita Alvarez, Democratic Candidate for State's Attorney, to the ward at our first Membership Meeting.
  • Sponsored trips for Obama to Michigan, Wisconsin and Indiana and hosted phone-banking volunteers for Obama at our new HQ.
  • Ran a highly successful Election Day with dozens of volunteers who drove judges to the polls, delivered lunches and answered phones.
  • Hosted our First Annual Unity Fundraiser with Peg Roth, the former 43rd Ward Committeeman, as our Honorary Co-Chair and over 150 people in attendance.
  • Held a Rally for Obama co-hosted by DePaul Democrats, Students & Families for Obama and the Obama Campaign where over a hundred students and longtime residents volunteered to make phone calls, go door-to-door and go out of town to help elect Barack Obama.
  • Opened our New Ward Office - at 2527 N. Lincoln Avenue. It's proven a great spot for Democrats to gather. Come visit soon!
