Illinois Democratic Central Committee members up for election once more
Each of Illinois' 19 congressional districts elects two representitives, one male, and one female, to serve on the Illinois State Democratic Central Committee, which in essense is the Democratic party apparatus in the state.
They serve as party organizers and fund-raisers and are generally charged with maintaining and invigorating the Democratic party in their districts.
Our two 17th district Central Committee representitives are, and have been for some time, Don Johnston and Mary Boland, both of whom can be expected to appear on the March '06 primary ballot.
Will anyone emerge to challenge either Johnston or Boland? Should someone? Is new blood called for? And if anyone were to challenge either of them, who would be a good candidate or candidates?
Speculate to your heart's content.
