October Recap + Early November Volunteer Opportunities

October was a busy month on the campaign trail! Here are a few things we were up to:

  • Welcomed new staff to #TeamUnderwood
  • Met with voters all across the Illinois 14th district

    • Gubernatorial Forum at Northern Illinois University

    • McHenry County Democrats Meeting

    • Kane County Coalition Coffee with Candidates

    • Will County Democratic Women Meeting

    • Kane County Democrats Meeting

    • Sycamore Pumpkin Parade

  • Lauren appeared on the Laura Coates Show on SiriusXM Radio

  • Lauren kicked off the Twitter chat series with Indivisible 14

  • Lauren spoke at the NewFounders Conference in Chicago

While we’ve been crisscrossing the district hearing from the community about the need for better jobs, higher wages and comprehensive health care, Congressional republicans have been asleep at the wheel on economic, health and safety issues:

  • No progress to fund the Children’s Health Insurance Program

  • Complete inaction to ban the dangerous bump stocks used in the Las Vegas shooting

  • Passed a damaging budget that eliminates the critical state and local tax (SALT) deduction

Its time for a change in leadership! Lauren is working to collect the required signatures to appear on the ballot. Join our Outreach Team at an upcoming event to knock on doors and talk with registered voters -- a couple hours of your time makes a big difference.
