Pleased to announce that 7th Ward Independent Democrats have voted to make the following additional endorsements for the August 7th Primary Election. The endorsements also come with endorsement by 7th Ward Democratic Committeewoman Marie Ceselski.
There will be another vote on 79th District as that there is no consensus yet. The top two candidates have been asked to submit 500 word essays for theme “My Commitment to Black Lives Matter.” We’re hoping the responses will wow the “No Endorsement in Primary” votes and a candidate will get to 60%.
We also have not voted yet on the GO Bond issue which will be on the ballot. Still working on some kind of forum for that.
