In February not only will we elect our choices for President, the Illinois General Assembly, County offices (such as Cook County Circuit Court Clerk, Board of Review, State's Attorney, Recorder of Deeds), and Water Reclamation District. Sixth ward will also elect committeemen for not only the Democratic and Republican Parties but the Green Party as well.
Well the Green Party is new to the scene since they won the required amount of votes in the gubernatorial election last year to be considered a major party. What that means is that they won't have to file as many petitions signatures if they were to have started a new/independent party. So they also get to elect committeemen and that position would allow them to build a party.
It should also be noted that filing for an elective office ended November 5th and it appears all are running unopposed for the election to their respective positions. In the 6th ward the committemen candidates are:
6th Ward Democratic Committeeman - Ald. Freddrenna Lyle
6th Ward Republican Committeeman - Jackie Robinson
6th Ward Green Party Committeeman - Beverly Neely
They have all filed to stand for election to head their respective parties in the 6th Ward.
According to the Cook County Clerk's Office.
BTW, here's a committeeman's race worth watching in the 7th Ward next year as Sandi Jackson takes on Bill Beavers for 7th Ward Democratic Committeeman.
