It doesn't matter what you say you believe. It's what you do that counts.

If we don't fight hard enough for the things we stand for,
at some point we have to recognize that we don't really stand for them. — PAUL WELLSTONE

    Veteran's Committee Meeting

    If you’re a veteran and a Democrat, we invite you to join the McHenry County Democrats' Veterans Committee, a new committee we have started to activate our local Vets.  Our next meeting is on Tuesday, May 21st at 7pm at the DPMC Office.

    Jesse Rojo will lead the discussion. He's chair of Illinois Veterans for Change, an organization dedicated to supporting Democratic military veterans running for all levels of office. We are getting ready for the November election, and ILV4C is working to create a statewide campaign targeting persuadable voters and showing them that Democrats are the true patriots and supporters of our military and Veterans.

    Whether you are a veteran or interested in supporting veterans, join this outreach committee and find out how we can reclaim the word patriotism from extreme MAGA Republicans and protect our democracy.

    Can't make the meeting? Sign up to find out about future meetings on our interest form.

    Districts 8 and 9 Hot Dog Picnic


    Please join us for our annual hot dog picnic. Hot dogs, chips, drinks, and ice cream - all provided as well as the fixin's for Chicago dogs. Meet local candidates and mingle with fellow Dems from Districts 8 & 9. Come for the food, the fellowship, the inspiration and the scenic beauty as we watch the sun go down over the Kishwaukee Valley. It was a beautiful and inspiring event in 2023, and for sure this year will be equally great.

    It’s all happening on the evening of Wednesday, June 5, 2024 — from 5:00 to 8:00 pm.

    The location is Shelter #2 at the Marengo Ridge Conservation Area, 2411 IL-23, Marengo, IL 60152.  It's on the east side of Route 23, between River Road on the south and Collins Road on the north.

    There's construction on Rt 23 going north.  So if driving from Huntley or south, there's an alternate route:  take Route 176 to Deerpass Rd, the first major road east of Route 23.   Go north on Deerpass to River Road, west on River Road back to Route 23, and then north on Route 23 for the final bit to Marengo Ridge.  (Map consultation is suggested since the detour signs take you back to Rt 14 / Harvard.)

    Help us have enough dogs for everyone - RSVP!
