Dear Amy,

Yesterday, I had the privilege of attending the Martin Luther King Brunch at St John African Methodist Episcopal in Aurora to honor the civil rights leader. Also pictured with me at this event are  Dianne McGuire, Chair of Naperville Township Democrats, her husband Fred Greenwood, owner of the Guilty Party Catering Company, Juan Thomas, candidate for CD11, Alice Wilson, candidate for Judge of the Circuit Court in District 18, Dennis Clark, Forest Preserve Candidate District 5, Mayor Tom Weisner (Aurora), AME Pastor Jesse Hawkins.

As you can see, we are reaching out in every way possible to let Democrats throughout DuPage know that we are here for them. In this clip above from youtube, you can hear Dr King's cry to OCCUPY and we mean, OCCUPY Everything and that includes Democratic events, social causes and, of course, the voting booths!

Best to you on this special day in honor of a man who understood the very core of what it means to be an American.

Bob Peickert
Chairman, DPDC

"I would like to get a discount this year at the annual Gala..."

Well, you can by subscribing as a member of DPDC for 2012. Please see our subscription rates and the premiums associated with each level here (all levels involve a Gala discount). Let's show our strength by having the highest levels of participation in all things Democratic in 2012! 
"WOW, I could sure use one thousand dollars right about now..."
Times are tight for many. We get that. And we know you want to support DPDC for their fine work on behalf of things you really believe in. 


Here is a chance to do that at a very low cost (with the potential of multiplying that investment 2-40 times). BUT EVEN BETTER, we will give you a packet of 5 tickets and if you sell 4, the 5th is yours for FREE! 


INTERESTED? Call 630-629-1125 and leave your name and phone number and we will get back to you or write to us at to buy your $25 ticket or to get a packet to sell.
