Campaign Bootcamp Is Underway

 … but it’s not too late to join!

We’re underway! LTDO and The Democratic Party of DuPage County are conducting training for anyone interested in running for local offices for November 2022 and April 2023 or seeking a paid campaign position. Experts in the field and people from local and national campaigns will teach the classes and work with you. You’ll learn highly marketable skills that you can use for paid campaign work or your own campaign. On completion, we’ll help you find a job or a race to work for.

The training began August 28 and will continue on Saturdays through December 11. (excluding 11/27) at 8:30-10 AM. It’s not too late to join! For campaign staffers (over 16 years old) or candidates wanting to know what to do in the field, in-person training on campaign fundamentals (field, digital communications, and fundraising) will be Sundays 1-5 PM. All materials are provided and are free.

Membership Meeting Monday, May 10

Join the May Lisle Township Organization on May 10th at 7:30PM via Zoom at bit.ly/05-10-21-LTDO. We will be hearing the latest from Springfield. State Senator Laura Ellman of the 21st District and State Representative Janet Yang Rohr of the 41st District will be educating us on what they have been doing in Springfield. They have both been very active passing exciting new legislation, maintaining district services & serving the people. All Democrats are invited.

LTDO Trivia Night July 31!

Please join us on Friday, July 31 from 8:00-9:00 p.m. for LTDO’s next Trivia Night Fundraiser. The event will be hosted on Zoom by LTDO member Urzula Urzua.

Did you miss our first Trivia Night?  You missed a great time! We are going to be playing via Zoom1, so be camera ready (or wear a mask)!!  Help LTDO raise funds for rent, printing, and postage.  Every little bit helps.

You may enter for any donation amount. Winners will receive Democratic-themed protective hand-sewn masks.

The event will go live at 8:00 p.m., and there will be a new round of trivia about every 15 minutes. Feel free to join any game. Our host will also serve as scorekeeper and referee.

The host will email you a Zoom invitation once your donation is processed.

All proceeds will go to support LTDO programs. We look forward to seeing you there!


1We played via Facebook last time, and some of us were watching answers pop up before the video caught up with the questions. It was like Johnny Carson’s Carnac the Magnificent routines. This shouldn’t be a problem with Zoom, nor will the Facebook-averse need logins.
