MTDO Party With Our Party

On the evening of July 13, close to 100 local Democrats celebrated the summer at Moraine Dems annual membership event, Party with Our Party, hosted this year by Highland Park Mayor Nancy Rotering. Even a brief thunderstorm could not dampen the festive mood as all present moved indoors to hear inspiring speeches from Susana Mendoza, candidate for Illinois Comptroller; Brad Schneider, candidate for Congress from the 10th District; Illinois State Senator Julie Morrison and State Representative Scott Drury, both running for reelection; Erin Cartwright Weinstein, candidate for Clerk of the Court of Lake County; Matt Stanton, candidate for Lake County State’s Attorney; and Tom Rudd, Lake County Corone r. A team of Tenth Dems interns staffed the sign-in table and helped keep the food platters full and the drinks flowing. Susana Mendoza, candidate for Illinois Comptroller, brought along her young son David, who seemed to find the speeches almost as entertaining as the rope swing in the garden.
