Barack Obama for U.S. Senate and U.S. President, Tom Dart For Sheriff, Pat Quinn for Governer of Illinois
Over the years I have supported dozens of candidates who I felt shared my views and commitment on the issues of the day. I was active in supporting Harold Washington for Mayor. I was co-chair of the Clinton-Gore Illinois campaign and the Carol Moseley-Braun campaign. I was co-chair of the Obama for Senate campaign and a Congressional liaison for Obama for President. In the most recent elections I was a strong supporter of Quinn/Simon ticket. It is a matter of principle for me, and a matter that I take great pride that I have always chosen candidates to support based their views and record, and the best interests of the people.
In addition to my own candidacies, I have supported progressive candidates at every level of government in elections going back to the 1970’s. I have served primarily as a volunteer.
Starting shortly before and throughout my political career spanning more than two decades, I have played a variety of roles
for a great number of candidates throughout the City of Chicago and the State of Illinois. I have served as a surrogate and campaign advisor and done precinct work and fundraising for a range of candidates. These include, but are not limited to: President Barack Obama for US Senate and for President (The variety of ways that I supported Mr. Obama in his runs for office including delivering a speech at the Democratic National Convention at which he accepted the Democratic nomination for president.)
