I couldn’t stop chuckling at this article in yesterday’s Naperville Sun:
With Democrats controlling all three prongs of Illinois government – the House, the Senate and the governor’s administration – Naperville needs an insider to fight for the city, Mayor George Pradel said.
“It makes so much sense (having) Democrats down there,” Pradel said. “They know all the sides to work and how to work them.”
While it’s nice to see the city acknowledge the positive impact on the community that Democrats can have, it’s equally nice to see the local party making strides on its own. I’ve been completely absent from the Naperville Democrats for most of the last year, but it’s clear that transitioning to Tom Wronski as Chair was a good move – and it’s equally clear that the party is going to play an increasingly important role in the community.
