SOAR Speaker Series: Meet the Democratic Candidates

We proudly present Meet the Candidates Speaker Series. This program is of special interest for Streeterville residents and stakeholders. "Meet the Candidates" will feature candidates for the Office of Governor of Illinois, in advance of the primary election on Tuesday, March 20.  The series is free and open to the public. Joining the Candidates will be NBC Reporter Charlie Wojciechowski, a Streeterville resident and SOAR member who has moderated many Aldermanic Town Hall meetings in the past. He will introduce each candidate, who will give a short presentation in advance of an extended question-and-answer period. Mr. Wojciechowski will field questions, including some provided by audience members who share them in the RSVP registration. Other questions will come from the floor. 
While the election is widely covered in newspapers and television, radio and online news, we believe that this series provides a unique opportunity to meet the candidates face-to-face. RSVP below today and join your Streeterville neighbors, local government officials, business executives and representatives from health, education, cultural and religious organizations for this experience.
This Gubernatorial Candidate Speaker Series is presented by SOAR with sponsorship support by Draper and Kramer, Wintrust Bank, and Community Advantage Bank.
