The only announced candidate to replace State Representative Barbara Wheeler, Tom Weber, held a fundraiser at the Crystal Lake Brewery Saturday afternoon.
It was like Old Home Week on Saturday afternoon as “used-to-bes” joined newcomers at Tom Weber’s fund raiser.
One of the members of the Host Committee was current State Rep. Wheeler.
The other Host was former Congressman Joe Walsh.
Weber worked the room well.
The gathering was large enough that it spilled into the main room.
I had to leave before the speechifying, but the folks in the photo below stayed.
After the event, Weber observed,
“I was honored to have so many people come out to our event. I felt that there was a lot of energy and enthusiasm.
“Barbara Wheeler said I also have big shoes to fill in District 64. Starting with our current State Representative Barbara Wheeler, Donna Kurtz, whose daughter came and Cal Skinner!”
