To me, politics is the public expression of internal values. 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

    Stop Voter Suppression Now!

    ballot box

    The McHenry County Clerk has decided to eliminate dozens of polling locations in 2018, presumably in an attempt to save money. The Clerk has not provided evidence that this plan will save any money at all, but it will definitely make it harder for thousands of citizens to vote. As many as 10 precincts are being crammed into one location. Parking will be at a premium at many of the consolidated locations, especially for elderly and disabled voters. The right to vote is the most important right we have as American citizens. We must not allow a bureaucrat to jeopardize our ability to participate in American democracy.

    Why do people vote against their own self-interests?

    This is long, but well worth the time to watch.

    Run for Office

    We can help you get your campaign off to the right start

    If you want to run for office but you don't know how to get started, we can help. We can guide you through the legal filing requirements and get you connected with volunteers, donors and campaign advisors. We provide classroom instruction on how to use voter data for smarter targeting, and even how to talk to voters.

    • 101 Steps to VictoryCampaigns are won by candidates — not yard signs, secret plans or fancy consultants.
    • The best candidate usually wins, given adequate funding. Your candidacy is defined by how prepared you are, how focused you are and how you conduct yourself over the course of your campaign.
    • Many candidates can’t articulate a compelling reason for running. Focus first on why you are running and then turn your attention to how you are going to win.
    • You will need to raise money. Asking for financial support is the one thing every candidate hates, but you cannot win without money for voter contact. You have to budget for direct mail, canvassing supplies, signs and digital media. The money won't come easy, but you can improve your results with the right approach.
