Candidate Forum: Illinois 6th Congressional Primary

Candidate Forum 2 28 17.jpg

Join our community as we consider questions and issues with the candidates who will be on the ballot for the March 20th Congressional Primary in the Illinois 6th District.                                            Seven Democratic candidates, running in the March 20 Primary Election for Illinois 6th Congressional District will participate in a forum hosted by LWVGE. This will be a great opportunity to meet the candidates and ask questions that are important to you. Candidates  will give short opening statements, answer questions submitted by the audience and a moderator and end with closing statements.The forum will conclude at 9 pm.   

Because there is only one candidate on the Republican primary ballot, there will not be a corresponding forum before the primary election, but we hope to be able to host one before the 2018 general election.

For more information on this and other events follow us on Facebook.  Clink this link to learn more about the Candidate Forum for the 6th Congressional District Primary Candidates.

From medicine to finance to education, science and technology seek to address a variety of human problems by producing data and tools to help us understand ourselves and our world. "But without careful consideration of the social dimensions of innovation,"s says Dr. Ruja Benjamin, "we risk reinforcing longstanding forms of inequity and injustice, and even producing new forms of discrimination that are hidden behind a veneer of technological neutrality." She will examine a range of contemporary issues at the nexus of data and democracy.

DuPage County Open House Meetings

DuPage County Open House Meetings

DuPage County is seeking input on a long-range transportation plan to cover the next quarter century.

This presents an excellent opportunity to provide feedback to County leaders on building the East Branch DuPage River Trail (EBDRT). We have waited over 30 years while this plan has sat on the back burner without completion. It is time that DuPage County spend some of their millions of dollars in transportation money in the CENTRAL part of the County by devoting funds to the completion of this trail project.

The trail project has been in the Village of Glen Ellyn’s comprehensive plan for decades. It has been in the LWVGE program positions book for decades. It has been engineered, but never funded.

Plan on attending one OR ALL of these meetings.

FILL OUT THE SURVEY ONLINE AT: www.dupageconnects.org  and ask EVERYONE YOU KNOW TO ALSO FILL IT OUT AND MENTION EBDRT!
