Election Day Tuesday November 2nd!

Your Vote Really Counts on Tuesday

Now, more than ever, it is important to make our voices heard and speak out to protect our rights! To ensure that, 43rd Ward Democrats have endorsed Pat Quinn for Governor and Alexi Giannoulias for Senate along with other progressive candidates. (See our Endorsements). Governor Quinn has a long history of standing up for a Woman's Right to Privacy and Choice without restriction. We also need to protect our Senate and House Majorities.

Toni Preckwinkle, for County Board President, has always distinguished herself as a progressive leader and Forrest Claypool, for County Assessor, stands as a voice for reform in his race.

The consequences of sitting this election out are dire. The Republican slate is filled with politicians who are out of touch with our times. Bill Brady disrespects women and their abilities. Not only does he oppose a Woman's Right to Choose, even in cases of rape and incest, but Brady has voted against equal pay for equal work and is in favor of lowering the minimum wage. On the local front, as well as the national, we simply cannot afford inaction.
