2019-05-14T20:07:24-05:00

IDCCA President’s Message by Kristina Zahorik, IDCCA President @ILDCCA @McHenryDems Dear County Chairs and Friends, May brings us Mother’s Day. Happy Mother’s Day! As a mother of five, I can’t help but think about their future. As a mom it is my job to worry. The worries seem to be bigger because of the current White House Administration. We teach our children not to lie, and it was reported that the President reached his 10,000th lie. We teach our children to respect others, and we have a President who mocks the disabled and not only appeals, but aligns himself with [...]

IDCCA President Kristina Zahorik Tours Illinois to Listen & Share by Toby Trimmer, Communications Director @ILDCCA  @tobytrimmer For IDCCA President Kristina Zahorik, creating a 102-county strategy isn't simply a talking point – it’s the foundation of building Democratic success throughout Illinois.

IDCCA President’s Message by Kristina Zahorik, IDCCA President @ILDCCA @McHenryDems Women's History, We're Just Getting Started Hello Fellow Chairs and Friends! March is women’s history month and I think about how this is our time to make history.

They needed to civically engage, doing whatever they could [...]

2019-02-08T09:39:53-05:00

IDCCA President’s Message by Kristina Zahorik, IDCCA President @ILDCCA @McHenryDems Fellow Chairs, We still have our work cut out for us, but 2020 is insight. Democratic values are American values and our values remain under attack from the Trump Administration and the GOP’s refusal to stand up to their President. We will continue to stand up and will continue to fight for our nation at every level. The State of the Union is one of a few haves and an increasing population of have nots or never haves.  Trump and the GOP has repeatedly supported policies and legislation that monetarily [...]
