Lauren Attends Late Summer Community Picnics


On August 20, I attended the DuPage Democrats picnic in Glen Ellyn. The Illinois 14 district includes parts of DuPage County, specifically Winfield Township and the cities of West Chicago and Warrenville. As I talked with folks from communities across the county, I was touched by their energy and optimism. Top of mind for many folks were a range of health care issues, which we discussed at length, including drug prices, pre-existing conditions, and how to fix the Affordable Care Act. We were also fortunate to hear from Senator Durbin, former governor Pat Quinn, and many gubernatorial candidates. Thank you to the DuPage Democrats for having #TeamUnderwood at the picnic!

On August 27, I attended the Kane County Democrats 14th Congressional Picnic. It was a beautiful afternoon where we connected with friends across the 14th. We discussed many opportunities to join #TeamUnderwood, including our plan for circulating nominating petitions. If you'd like to help ensure we're on the ballot in March, join our growing outreach team! You can sign up at www.underwoodforcongress.com/volunteer/.

Thank you to the Kane County Democrats for having us at the picnic!
