One Hour a Week

Trent Taylor, our 2014 candidate for DeKalb County Clerk and Recorder, has already knocked on thousands of voters’ doors, but with a goal of 21,000 doors knocked by September 1, we need more than just Trent out there working hard.  We are asking each of you to volunteer one hour per week to knock on doors. 
 
Each Monday we will get a new walk packet to you and take back your completed one. A walk packet will include a map of the doors to knock on, a script to use at the doors, a list of all voters we are trying to contact and literature to give the voters.  Your voter list will not include more than 30 doors to knock on and will take about one hour to walk.  If for some reason you are unable to knock on doors any given week, we will pick back up with the program the following week.
 
With all of us putting in one hour per week, Trent will meet his goal of knocking on doors throughout the county, and will be that much closer to beating current appointed County Clerk Doug Johnson.  Doug Johnson is the same appointed clerk that earlier this year tried to deny same sex couples the right to marry in DeKalb County and did not do so until he was overruled by the courts.  Johnson brings his conservative agenda into an office that handles our elections and we cannot have someone with that mind frame running the office.  We need someone who will leave the partisan politics at the door and who will make sure that every voter and every person in our county receive the same opportunities.

We hope you will all join us in supporting Trent Taylor by knocking on doors and we thank you in advance for your assistance in electing Trent Taylor.  A win forTrent is a win for DeKalb County!

Dems vs. Reps – Softball Showdown

softballCrest_webPlease join the DeKalb County Democrats as we take on the Republicans in a friendly softball game to benefit the Kishwaukee United Way. The game will be held on Saturday, September 20th at 5:00pm at Katz Park in DeKalb (IL).

To make this a successful event we need your participation both on and off the ball field. We are asking all participants to raise $30 (this is a minimum but we encourage you to raise as much as you can) for the Kishwaukee United Way.

We will be playing with a 16 inch softball and wood bats so gloves are not necessary to play. No softball experience is necessary just a willingness to have fun.

If you are interested in playing on the team please contact Mark Pietrowski at 815-762-2054 or MarkPietrowski@gmail.com by Friday, July 19th with your shirt size.

We will have a 50/50 raffle and concessions available at the event with proceeds going to the United Way.

Can’t wait to see you there as we raise money for this great cause!
