Tonight ought to be entertaining, it’s the county convention and it’s a contested race for county chair. As I mentioned last week, I’m backing Gayl Ferraro in her reelection effort. Her opponent, Doug Cole, doesn’t strike me as the guy we need in charge of the county party: his well-publicized antagonism of the Duckworth campaign, her supporters, and party officials in Chicago and DC seems ill-suited to grow the Democratic Party in DuPage County.
I’m thrilled that Mark Demich is throwing his hat in the ring as First Vice Chair, as he’s built a tremendous organization in Milton Township and will bring an operational skill to the county level that will be a boon to every township.
Will report back after the festivities wrap up.
