Lake County Democratic Women Honor Garrett, May

Retiring State Rep. Karen May (l.) and State Sen. Susan Garrett (r.)

Lake County Democratic Women honored State Senator Susan Garrett (D-29th ) and State Representative Karen May (D-58th) on their upcoming retirement from the Illinois Legislature at a “Toast and Roast” July 16 in Lake Forest.

“Susan Garrett and Karen May have played a huge role in guiding and mentoring women in Lake County who are interested in running for public office. Their example has inspired so many women over the years to step up to a higher level of public service. We want to take this opportunity to recognize their significant contributions while continuing their mission of helping qualified women run for office,” said Lauren Beth Gash, one of the organizers of the event and a former State Representative.
