Political Party

I just wanted to say thanks to the 200+ people that attended the ChicagoPAC event that we hosted this past Friday night in downtown Chicago. The event attracted folks from all over the City for an informal evening of socializing and mingling with various elected officials and candidates.

Among the political folks in attendance were:

Hon. William Marovitz
Ald. Manny Flores
Hon. Terry O'Brien
Rep. Toni Berrios

State Treasurer Candidate Alexi Giannoulias

Water Rec. Candidates: Frank Avila Jr., Dean Maragos, Committeeman Barrett Pedersen, Debra Shore, and Bogie Stefanski

Judicial Candidates Siobbhan Murphy and Leo Lastre

Aldermanic Candidate Brendan Reilly

I think that everybody had a good time, made some new acquaintances and got a little better sense of what ChicagoPAC is going to be about. I'm looking forward to the next event and to the future of our City.

Glad so see you had a successful event.

From your post I saw that Alexi Giannoulias attended. I recently met Alexi when he was in Southern Illinois and was very impressed.

I think it is great that we have someone on the ballot for Treasurer who has an extensive background in business and finance.

It is great to see Billy Marovitz out and about. Did he explain the $65,000.00 he removed from his campaign for personal use? I thought he has a non-paying position? Waht did Billy say his position on the issues is, if any?

Several of my friends and I attended. It was one of the best Chicago PAC events so far. The room was packed, as always, but still there was room to move and you could hear what people were saying. Great job to Rep. John, Aviva and Colleen…. Also, I completely agree with Southern IL Dem. Alexi Giannoulias is more qualified for Treasurer than anyone to run (or win) in recent memory. His age, I feel, is an asset. And if the party wants to bring geographic balance to the statewide ticket they need to recruit serious QUALIFIED candidates from outside Cook County. NOT ram down our throats a two-time loser (Mangieri) for state office who flip-flops from conservative to barely Democratic views on issues depending on the week and what county he’s in.

Glad to see that a couple of well qualified candidates for the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District were there.

Debra Shore
Frank Avila

These two people deserve the voter's attention!
