Dupage United / Attorney General Candidate Assembly Report
(post-election update March 2018)
DuPage United and our regional affiliates in Chicago Metro IAF had a fantastic and successful assembly on March 11 with all 10 candidates for Attorney General, and the power of 1257 active citizens. Most importantly, all the candidates agreed, if elected in November, to meet with us within 30 days of the election concerning our strategies around mental health, housing, gun violence, and immigration.
Because of this assembly we already have commitments from the winners of the primary election, Republican Erika Harold and Democrat Kwame Raoul, to meet with us within 30 days if elected in November.
We had 35 from Union Church present. The personal stories, strategy information, and the three-minute speeches from the candidates were all excellent parts of the assembly. “Well done,” to our Union Church DuPage United Core Team!
