Online Video/Phone Conference (Participants must register for the meeting)
Invited attendees: Members of the Cook County Green Party and DuPage County Green Party
We are holding a special meeting to decide whether to endorse candidates for the November 3rd, 2020 General Election. Per Illinois Green Party bylaws, chapters that reside in the district are responsible for deciding whether to endorse candidates in that district.
We had scheduled interviews for these two candidates for Congress (IL-5) at our last endorsements meeting held on 6-15-20, but the meeting went long, so we postponed this endorsement until this meeting.
We are deciding whether to endorse one the following candidates:
- Candidates for Congress (IL-5) – Cook, DuPage
- Ellen Corley
- Thomas Wilda
- Completed candidate questionnaire for your review
- US House District (IL-5) has 732,035 residents. About 90% of the district is in Cook County and about 10% in DuPage County. The district represents all or parts of several cities (Chicago, Des Plaines, Elmhurst, Northlake, Oakbrook Terrace, Wood Dale) and villages (Bensenville, Elmwood Park, Franklin Park, Harwood Heights, Hillside, Hinsdale, La Grange Park, Melrose Park, Niles, Norridge, Oak Brook, River Grove, Rosemont, Schiller Park, Villa Park, Westchester, Western Springs, Westmont).
- Chapters responsible for endorsement: Cook County Green Party and DuPage County Green Party
Sorry about the short notice, but we have just recently been informed that the Judge has changed the Illinois pandemic petitioning court order resulting in the deadline being moved up to July 20th for the last day to file our ballot petitions.
If you are not able to join us via video on your computer or smart device, you can still join us by calling into the meeting on your phone. After you register for the meeting you will receive the link to join the video/audio conference and the phone number.
Hosted by the Cook County Green Party and DuPage County Green Party.
