Thank you to everyone who attended and participated in New Trier Dems Endorsement Meeting! We had an energizing afternoon of grassroots politics and civic participation. We were very happy to welcome many new members as well as many familiar faces and friends.
A special thank you to all of our volunteers who made this event a success, and to all the candidates who took time out of their busy schedules to speak to our membership!
For New Trier Dems’ membership to endorse, a candidate had to receive at least 60% of the votes of all members present. Congratulations to all of the candidates who received our endorsement!
Here are our endorsements in the contested races for the March 2018 Democratic Primary:
Illinois Attorney General
Illinois State Representative – 17th District
Cook County President
Cook County Assessor
Cook County Treasurer
Cook County Board Commissioner for the 13th District
**To be clear, “No Endorsement” means that we failed to reach 60% agreement of our membership to endorse. This result does not mean that we are unenthused about these candidates. On the contrary, this result reflects that we have many excellent candidates running for office and we simply failed to reach 60% agreement. Democrats will have a wonderful candidate who will fight for the citizens of Illinois no matter who eventually wins the Democratic Primary for Illinois Attorney General.
We also endorsed – by voice vote – the following Democratic candidates in uncontested primary races:
U.S. House of Representatives for the 9th District of Illinois
U.S. House of Representatives for the 10th District of Illinois
Illinois Secretary of State
Illinois State Senator – 9th District
Illinois State Senator – 29th District
Illinois State Representative – 18th District
Illinois State Representative – 58th District
Cook County Clerk
Cook County Sheriff
Democratic State Central Committeeman
Cook County Board of Review Commissioner – 2nd District
