Thanks for visiting our events page!

If you've never taken the plunge to get involved in political action, we encourage you to get to know us by attending a meeting. We are a growing local party, but we need more people like you to step up and share your perspective. We are building teams of people to tackle projects like data entry and analytics, voter registration, special events, social media and content management, and candidate support and canvassing.

Virtual Coffee with Former State Senator Biss

Coffee with former State Sen. Daniel Biss

The Fair Tax is finally on the ballot! 

Our Democratically controlled State Government has come up with a solid plan to get Illinois finances going in a better and fairer direction. There is a lot of misinformation coming from the other side and we want you to have the facts.  

This November election is vital for our country, state and county; however, the Fair Tax is going to be at the top of the ballot and is just as important. 

We have a good friend, former State Senator Daniel Biss, willing to explain it all to us at a special virtual coffee hosted by the Sun City Democrats on July 16th at 10:30 am. You may have seen the mathematician when he addressed this issue before the Democratic Party of McHenry County last year.  

RSVP to receive the Zoom link the day of the Coffee. Be sure to have your own coffee, donut, and any questions at the ready! You will be able to ask questions via the Zoom chat setting. 

For more detail please contact Geri Levine at (g2a2l@aol.com) or District 6 Chair Cathy Johnson (district6@mchenrydems.org) 

      Tell a friend and we'll see you there!
