By Cynthia Borbas – Chair of the Democratic Party of DuPage County

In order for us to build on the progress made in DuPage, it’s time for the Democratic Party of DuPage County (DPDC) to take that next step forward. I am excited to get a chance to work with each of you as we work to move forward in an empowered, unified and active way to ensure the people’s work is done. We will be successful because of our shared set of goals and vision, and because what drives us is to improve our organization, not personal gain.

We have a large number of Democratic Candidates running in the 2019 Municipal Election, many of them are Democratic PCs. They need your help! DPDC will have 2019 GOTV initiatives on 3/23, 3/24, 3/30 and 3/31. These will include Phone Banking, Virtual Phone Banking and Hustle (Texting). Please reach out to a local candidate directly, reach out to your Township and/or join DPDC to GOTV for our 2019 Candidates.

Join us on Sunday April 7th, 2019 for our Annual DPDC Gala. We are energized and organized to ride the Blue Wave coming in 2020, but we need your help. This event provides a large portion of the monies needed to make the electoral magic happen in 2020! Join us for an amazing night with like-minded people fighting for Economic Justice, Civil Rights and the Environment. We will have a great line-up of highlighted speakers including Renato Mariotti. Renato is a former federal prosecutor and current CNN Legal Analyst, as well as the host of #OnTopic Podcast. He is an in-demand media source, legal analyst, and commentator on major national news events, and has written for publications such as the New York Times, the Washington Post, Newsweek, and Politico. Renato will give us his expert perspective on national issues and Trump’s legal problems. We will announce additional speakers as we finalize details.

Our work for 2020 starts now. Please be on the lookout for opportunities to get involved with shaping how DPDC moves forward. A number of strategy sessions will be held in the near future, Outreach, PCs, Recruiting and Campaign Strategy will be among the first strategy sessions. Please feel free to reach out at any time, I would love to hear from you.
