The biography from Friends of Kristina Zahorik reads:
Kristina Zahorik is District 3 Chairman for the McHenry County Democrats (MCD).
She successfully completed several projects within the last six months with MCD; including running the MCD 2013 County Fair booth, a Halloween fundraiser, a petition signature drive for state and local candidates, recruitment of several Democratic candidates for the 2014 campaign cycle, hosting a documentary with the McHenry College Democrats about her former boss Senator Paul Simon, and assisting in MCD social media.
Kristina continues to reach out, meet, and work with neighboring counties and like-minded organizations fostering stronger ties to grow the Democratic Party and potential candidates.
Kristina, a former senior legislative aide for the late Senator Paul Simon on his Subcommittee on Employment and Productivity in Washington, D.C., moved back to Illinois to raise a family when he retired.
She and her husband initially chose his hometown, Cary, to put down roots.
As their family grew to five children, they moved to the neighboring town of Oakwood Hills.
She has a M.A. from George Washington University and a B.A. from the University of Illinois.
