The way forward

Lawsuit dismissed

The Democratic Party of McHenry County is pleased to announce that a lawsuit filed by the owners of a business known as Heroic Media, against current and former members of our Executive Board, has been voluntarily dismissed by Heroic Media.

The suit, filed on April 19, 2018, was first dismissed by the Circuit Court on November 27, 2018 for failure to state a claim. In the interests of fairness to the plaintiffs, the judge permitted them to file an amended complaint. The amended complaint, filed on January 14, 2019, was also dismissed by the Circuit Court because it too failed to state a legal claim. The court again allowed the plaintiff to amend their complaint. The plaintiffs subsequently filed a third complaint on April 9, 2019. In response, defendants filed a motion to dismiss the third complaint. After receiving our motion to dismiss, Heroic Media voluntarily dismissed their lawsuit on August 13, 2019.

We’re not anti-Trump. We are pro-America.

Donald Trump is an out-of-control dumpster fire. No one with any sense at all would dispute that. But so what?

We can’t solve America’s problems with clever posts on Facebook or twitter. Buttons and bumper stickers won’t make America safe for Democracy again.

We must lead the way by living our values, no matter the personal risk in doing so. Our founders pledged their lives, their fortune and their sacred honor to make this nation possible. They risked everything.

The least we can do is open our eyes fully, see what needs to be done, and accept the challenge of being citizens. Risk being a leader. Often, that means doing things that are hard. It may mean doing things that make us uncomfortable. It may even mean opening our wallets to support the people and causes we believe in.
