    Thank you for this. Please put this information on a HIGH PRIORITY position on your Home Page. Also please include recommended JUDGES somewhere on your site (preferably with these candidates above)

    I was under the impression that Taso Triantafillos was LR or SR. In his Daily Herald bio, he says the current leader that most inspires him is Rudy Giuliani….It is almost impossible for me to believe a LD would choose him of all people! Naperville Progressives suggests a single vote for Dan Markwell. Could you say how you decided on Triantafillos’ affiliation? Thank you.

    I seem to remember that Isaac is for School Choice. Maybe in a commercial?

    Also, Kristine Gericke is with us. She is smart and very capable.

  • D A Horner

    Thank you for compiling this information, and please continue to do this! We need this kind of information more than ever before in order to protect the progressive values and ideals of our local communities. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    Can you please ask Democratic candidates to respond to the League of Women Voters “Vote411.org” site? This is where I typically go for information on all candidates/issues on my specific ballot. Thanks.

      Well, because the election was yesterday, it may be hard to get them to do that now. But we can certainly keep this in mind for the next election. Thanks.
