We were honored to have Rep. Cheri Bustos visit us here in McLean County on Saturday, May 4, 2019.
Congratulations to Kay Moss and Lola Augstin, 2019 Roosevelt Award winners!
The 2019 Roosevelt award was awarded to Kay Moss and Lola Augstin, for their outstanding service to the Party.
First, we honored Kay Moss for her contributions recruiting and mentoring precinct committee people and for being our "get shit done" person. Kay is behind the scenes organizing and working on much of everything we do. She is involved in our committees, keeps a to-do list, and keeps us all on task.
Our second Roosevelt award honored our very own Lola Augstin for her countless hours as our volunteer office manager. Lola is there every morning to open up the headquarters and stays to lock up at night. Having a permanent, staffed headquarters is a game-changer. We have Lola to thank for this. She's the heart of our party.
The McLean County Democrats joined Senator Dick Durbin, and Democratic Candidates JB Pritzker, Juliana Stratton, Nikita Richards for McLean County Clerk, and McLean County Democrats chair Erik Rankin for a rally to kick off Democrat Day in McLean County at the JB Pritzker campaign office at 417 N. Main St. in Bloomington, IL on Wednesday, Aug. 15 at 10am.
The rally kicked off a day of Democratic events that finished with the Baldini Scholarship Dinner later that evening. The next day, Democrats from all over the state were in Springfield to celebrate Democrat Day at the Illinois State Fair.
