SANDY’S LIGHTHOUSE EDITION
Quinn, Democrats drum up support in suburbs (all)
Gov. Pat Quinn, speaking to a room full of suburban Democrats, said on Sunday that one key to future prosperity for the state is that everyone be given the opportunity to share in the success. "Our state will move forward only if everybody's in, and no one's left out," he said. Quinn was the keynote speaker at a meet-the-candidates breakfast and fundraiser hosted Sunday by Schaumburg Area Democrats, a political group that raises awareness of Democratic candidates.
The primary election will be held March 18, with the general election on Nov. 4. "It promises to be a tough fight, but we'll be ready for it," Quinn said. Other politicians who spoke during Sunday's breakfast included current Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon, who will run next year for state comptroller; state Sen. Mike Frerichs, who will run for state treasurer; state Rep. Michelle Mussman, who will run for a third term in the 56th House District; Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle and Cook County Clerk David Orr, both of whom will try to retain their posts; and a slate of three candidates for the board of the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago — incumbent Frank Avila and newcomers Josina Morita and Tim Bradford.
