What a time for Democrats in DuPage! The officers of the DPDC, members of the Central Committee, our township organizations and our many volunteers are engaged as never before. Here are just a few highlights:
• Our "Wake Up DuPage" mobilization effort is underway. Check out the website at http://www.wakeupdupage.com/
• DuPage Young Democrats are energized, active and on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/dupageyoungdems.
• Our recent golf outing was our most successful ever thanks to the many individuals, labor unions and businesses that participated. Click here for photos of the event http://tinyurl.com/3heraw2.
• Candidate recruitment is in high gear after a great kick off event July 15.
Now is a great time to join us in turning DuPage Blue. Together, we can make the changes our county, state and country need. Become a precinct representative, run for elected office, volunteer for one of our committees, attend Camp Wellstone. And, of course, help fund our projects with a generous contribution. Opportunities exist to add more Democratic districts in DuPage. Buyers' remorse has set in now that the Washington Republicans have demonstrated their real objective - win in 2012 even at the expense of destroying our economy.
