Why sign an oath saying you won’t try to overthrow the government when you’ve already tried to overthrow the government?

The pledge, a vestige of the McCarthy Red Scare era, is not mandatory, but has been signed by candidates for decades, including by Trump in 2020 and 2016.

3 years ago Donald Trump called on his army of MAGA extremists to storm the U.S. Capitol and overthrow our democracy. Republicans have refused to hold Trump accountable since that fateful day. Now they seemed poised to make him the GOP Presidential nominee. Come this November, voters will remember those who stood up and those who sat silently as MAGA extremists laid siege on our country.

Please join us in welcoming our new President, Kane County Democrats Chair Mark Guethle! First elected County Chair in 2002, President Guethle has transformed what was once considered a strong Republican area to a county where Democrats control most levels of government. Recently retired as the Director of Governmental Affairs of Painters District Council No. 30, Guethle has been a long time leader within Organized Labor and the Democratic Party. Guethle also serves as a Village Trustee in his home community of North Aurora and previously served as the State Central Committeeman for the Democratic Party of Illinois representing the 14th Congressional District.

Today we lost a true leader and friend of every County Chair. Ed Smith of Ullico Inc. Laborers' Union Local 773 was a giant within the labor community and embodied the true meaning of Democratic Party Builder. We are a stronger IDCCA and a stronger Democratic Party because of Ed Smith. Through good times and bad, Ed was shoulder to shoulder with the IDCCA. We could not ask for a better ally and friend than him.

The thoughts and prayers of every County Chair are with his family and friends. Rest in Power, dear friend.

2023 was a banner year for the IDCCA and 2024 is shaping up to be another in Illinois. Here are just some of the things we're proud to have accomplished.

* Launched in early 2023 a widely successful "Text to Recruit" program that has recruited candidates to run for school board, city council, and a host of other local offices. Then, partnering with the Democratic Party of Illinois, launched in the fall of 2023 a larger effort to recruit countywide and county board candidates.
* Worked with statewide partners to help identify MAGA extremists running for school boards and library board to help defeat them at the ballot box at the Municipal Elections.
* Hosted our 7th Annual Boot Camp with the National Democratic Training Committee to train over 150 candidates, campaign staffers, and Democratic Party leaders.
* Honored 5 distinguished Democrats with our Party Builder Award.
* Hosted one of the largest County Chairs' Brunch, headlined by our friend U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto to kick off Governor's Day at the Illinois State Fair.

2024 is going to be an even bigger year for the IDCCA. Stay tuned!
