This fund is devoted entirely to the support of the campaigns of your local Democratic candidates. Lake County Democratic candidates fill out an application with the Lake County Democratic Party to be considered.

We are hurtling backwards. It is critical that we make an immediate U Turn to not only save our nation but our future generations.
Get involved NOW! The Democratic Party is the People’s party.
Lillian Lockette

Life is not stagnant, we either move forward or backward. There is no status quo. Change is wedded to opportunity and its progeny is discovery, achievement and success. That is why I am a Progressive: Moving forward affirmatively and confidently with new ideas.
Choice Edwards

The world always moves to the left on social and human rights issues. On women’s rights, minority rights, voting rights, capital punishment, health care and gay rights.

Marvin Jacobson

I choose to be a part of the Democratic Party to help make sure that my grandchildren and future generations have access to affordable healthcare, live in a cleaner environment and have the benefit of a good and affordable education.
