Register Now for Democratic Party of DuPage County Unity Reception

As we discovered in 2008 when we elected Barack Obama by double digits in DuPage (the formerly bloody red heart of America), our strength is in our unity. As we watch the Republicans claw at each other for the dubious position of running against the President, we see how unproductive, nay DESTRUCTIVE, that kind of carping is to the fabric of the party. While I am happy to have them continue that kind of behavior ad infinitum, we know a better way.

On Sunday, Nov 20th, Democrats in DuPage will show that, with civility, we can contend for the rights to run for office even among our Democratic peers. Yes, there may be a contrast of ideas from which voters can choose, but negative swiping just produces a disenfranchised, disgusted mass of non-voters.

Please support our Nov 20th Unity reception at Monty's Banquets in Bensenville. Capacity is limited to 200 people so please send your check for $20 to DPDC. Your money only covers costs of the event. This is a party, not a fundraiser!
