Leaving the First United Methodist Church on West Crystal Lake Avenue I saw Democratic Party activist Terry Kappel walking toward town.
Not knowing whether he was knocking on doors or might want a ride, I doubled back to ask.
Kappel was knocking on doors, helping out Lori McConville’s County Board campaign, among others.
As we were talking, Mike Defrancesco from across the street walked over to ask what Kappel was selling. When he found out it was the Democratic Party, he announced his and his wife Sharon’s allegiance and took the literature pack.
Kappel had asked me if I was going to stop over at the Colonial Cafe to see Democratic Party Lt. Governor candidate Sheila Simon.
I had a birthday luncheon that started before the 3 o’clock start time and lasted until after Simon had already departed.
I did hear that about 22 people attended the organizing meeting that Pat Quinn Field Coordinator Gloria Wiekert Of Roscoe had put together.
She told me Simon would be back in the area and told me she would email me when she was coming.
So far I don’t have a photo of the candidate.
