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 [...]

IDCCA President’s Message – August 2020

IDCCA President’s Message by Kristina Zahorik, IDCCA President @ILDCCA @McHenryDems Dear Fellow County Chairs and Friends, I hope this message finds you and yours well. Happy Women’s Equality Day! August 26th marks the 100th anniversary of the Nineteenth Amendment granting women the right to vote. Women play a critical role in our organization building the Party, providing election integrity, and electing Democratic candidates. The IDCCA has a record number of women in leadership positions with 29% of Illinois Democratic County Parties being led by women. In the historic Blue Wave of 2018, women were the key to victory, running [...]

IDCCA President’s Message – July 2020

IDCCA President’s Message by Kristina Zahorik, IDCCA President @ILDCCA @McHenryDems Dear Fellow County Chairs and Friends, I hope this message finds you and yours well. Like you, I am proud of our efforts to elect Governor JB Pritzker and other Democrats in 2018. By providing strong leadership and basing decisions on science with the advice of qualified health experts, we have weathered this pandemic better than most other states. We must resist the push from the GOP to politicize the health crisis. We must continue to be vigilant, follow the science-based guidelines, wear face masks, wash hands, and keep [...]
