IDCCA President’s Message – April 2021

IDCCA President’s Message by Kristina Zahorik, IDCCA President @ILDCCA @McHenryDems Dear Fellow County Chairs and Friends, Your help to elect Democrats has resulted in their ability to provide the real help the American people need – shots in arms and checks in hand. I want to share with you the good news from the White House and the Democratic National Committee. When President Biden took office, he promised help was on the way.  Now, Biden and Democrats have delivered on that promise in a big way. Help is here. Democrats have delivered real, tangible results for the American people [...]

IDCCA President’s Message by Kristina Zahorik, IDCCA President @ILDCCA @McHenryDems Dear Fellow County Chairs and Friends, We are beginning to see signs of Spring; it brings us hope as we near an end to the pandemic. Nearly 3,300,000 Illinoisans have been vaccinated. Get up-to-date information about Illinois’ response and how to find vaccinations HERE.

IDCCA President’s Message – February 2021

IDCCA President’s Message by Kristina Zahorik, IDCCA President @ILDCCA @McHenryDems Dear Fellow County Chairs and Friends, Congratulations during Black History Month to the Honorable Chris Welch on his historic election to Illinois House Speaker and to former Sangamon County Democratic Chair the Honorable Doris Turner to the Illinois Senate. On President’s Day weekend, the worst American President avoids conviction on a technicality. I write to you just after the Senate did not have the final 10 votes needed for the super majority to convict Trump. We knew this would be the outcome, but the nation had to go through [...]

IDCCA President’s Message – January 2021

IDCCA President’s Message by Kristina Zahorik, IDCCA President @ILDCCA @McHenryDems Dear Fellow County Chairs and Friends, What a New Year. In the midst of a brazen challenge to the rule of law and democracy by Trump, his Republican enablers and supporters, I want to highlight that we won. We did it. You did it. The American people rejected the Republican vision of America under Trump. With control of the Presidency, the Senate, and the House, we have much to do to repair the damage done and build back better. Who better to build back than Democrats? As we state [...]

IDCCA President’s Message – December 2020

IDCCA President’s Message by Kristina Zahorik, IDCCA President @ILDCCA @McHenryDems Dear Fellow County Chairs and Friends, The holiday season is upon us.  I hope it finds you and yours healthy and well. Thankfully, science has won the day and we are seeing the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine. The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices released the Restore Illinois plan that recommends healthcare workers and residents and employees of long-term care facilities or assisted living residences be the first in the U.S. to receive COVID-19 vaccines. Those vaccinations began on the same day the Illinois Electoral College met to cast their vote in [...]

IDCCA President’s Message – November 2020

IDCCA President’s Message by Kristina Zahorik, IDCCA President @ILDCCA @McHenryDems Dear Fellow County Chairs and Friends, Is it over yet? It depends on what we are talking about. We helped to restore our democracy by electing Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. President-elect Biden has won by more votes than ever in presidential history. He has also won the Electoral College by the same “landslide” margin that Donald Trump won in 2016. But Trump and his GOP enablers have not conceded or allowed for a smooth transition. Illinois electors wrote a letter to Emily Murphy, the General Services Administrator who was holding [...]
