Democratic gubernatorial candidate JB Pritzker and retiring Cook County Clerk David Orr will highlight the New Trier Democrats Annual Dinner, Sunday evening, Oct. 14h at Maggiano’s Old Orchard.
JB Pritzker, keynote speaker at the New Trier Democrats Dinner, is challenging Gov. Bruce Rauner this November in the hottest race in Illinois. “The progressive values JB spent his life fighting for are under assault by Donald Trump and his partner in Springfield,” Pritzker says. “Illinois’ working families need a leader in Springfield who will fight to expand healthcare, invest in public quality education, and create jobs throughout our state. He’ll bring the state together to get big things done for working families.”
David Orr has managed the Cook County Board of Elections, the third largest election district in America, since 1990. He’s been lauded for exceptional administration and fairness supervising scores of primary and general elections in both the Chicago and numerous suburbs. In recognition of his retirement, New Trier Democrats will express their gratitude and honor Orr.
Also expected at the New Trier Democrats Annual Dinner are U.S. Congresspersons Jan Schakowsky and Brad Schneider, Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle, State Senators Daniel Biss and Julie Morrison, State Reps. Robyn Gabel, Laura Fine, Scott Drury and Elaine Nekritz, and Cook County Commissioner Larry Suffredin. New Trier Democratic Committeeman Dean Maragos will be host. The 2018 Annual Dinner includes a 5:00 p.m. reception and 6:15 p.m. dinner. Information and tickets are available at www.ntdo.com.
