Lake County Democrats Welcome You
Perhaps at no time in our recent history is there more at stake than now. Medicare, Social Security and our most vulnerable citizens are under attack. The middle class is under attack. Progressive values are under attack. But you can help us fight back.
The 2014 election will bring a roster of outstanding Democratic candidates for office at the local and national level. Each one is dedicated to upholding the values which provide strength for our community, state and nation. And each candidate is committed to public service and brings a wealth of insight and experience.
The Democratic Party stands for people-oriented public policy... jobs, fiscal discipline, sensible foreign policy, national security, education, affordable health care, environmental protection, international cooperation and the participation of the public towards the goal of this country achieving its ultimate best.
The Lake County Democratic Party works towards these goals by helping democratic candidates, arranging events, assisting voters, providing information about issues and much more.
We need your help to transform this county and this country into one where the needs of its people come first. Will you help?

Rep. Yingling proposes to partner after marriage vote
In the hours following lawmakers' approval of same-sex marriage Tuesday, state Rep. Sam Yingling proposed to his partner at a celebratory party at the governor's mansion in Springfield.
The Round Lake Beach Democrat says he'd been preparing for the moment for a while, purchasing the ring he gave to Lowell Jaffe well in advance and planning to pop the question shortly after lawmakers voted — a vote supporters originally hoped would be last May.
"I had been carrying a ring back and forth to Springfield for a while," Yingling said Wednesday.

Janet E. Kilkelly seeks Lake County Clerk office
Today, Janet E. Kilkelly announced her candidacy for the office of Lake County Clerk in the upcoming 2014 election.
“I believe that Lake County residents deserve a County Clerk’s office that delivers services efficiently so that taxpayer dollars are stretched as far as possible,” said Kilkelly, a Democrat. “The Clerk’s office projected 2014 budget will cost county taxpayers just under $4.5 million and I think that can be trimmed significantly, without cutting jobs. “
