Spring Fundraising Drive in Full Swing
Many of you probably received a letter or email recently from Lake Dems urging you to “not be caught napping” as the 2022 campaign roars to life. Our candidates have filed their petitions and are now reaching out to voters even more enthusiastically to get their messages across.
Lake Dems will be promoting Vote-by-Mail and doing voter protection again as well as all the other activities that increase Democratic turnout. Can you help? Please go to lakedems.org/contribute to help make all of our voices heard in November. And be sure to watch for an announcement of our Spring Fundraiser, coming soon.

Democrats Delivering for Lake County
Lake Dems is grateful for our many active volunteers, including the following:
Pam Idleburg is a long-time Democratic volunteer who serves as a precinct committeeperson and is Zion Township Democratic Chair. She helps plan petition-gathering activities and organizes envelope-stuffing and postcard-writing parties, as well as helping candidates on a regular basis. Pam also plays a significant role in Democratic communication and other election activities, such as our Democratic Election Protection Team.
