Peter Janko, the Only Member of the Democratic Party’s State Central Committee Not to Vote for Mike Madigan, Speaks

Here is the comment that Marengo Democratic Party State Central Committeeman made on Capitol Fax:

Peter Janko – Friday, Feb 26, 21 @ 2:34 pm:

I was elected to the Democratic State Central in 2018.

I have attended every Democratic State Central Committee Meeting and function in both Springfield and in Chicago since then.

I have also attended

  • JB’s inauguration;
  • the last two Democratic Chair Brunches;
  • the after election open houses and socials in Springfield.

Yet in those two years, I have never met Michelle Harris.

The first time I heard her name was when the Democratic Party Chair candidates were first announced and I had no idea who she was.

From Michelle Harris’s “My Vision for the Future of the Democratic Party of Illinois”

In that spirit, I wanted to present my ideas about how to do just that.

This is not an exhaustive list – I will continue to add to it as I have conversations with each of you and Democrats across the state.

But it does reflect ideas and input I have heard from Democrats across Illinois over my years serving on the State Central Committee, and in conversations with many SCC members this week.

I hope it will give you a sense of the leadership I would bring as Chairwoman of the Democratic Party.

I am happy to have further conversations with any and all of you about each of these ideas.

To Michelle Harris,

“Where were you two years ago when I was first elected and ever since then?”

Call me just a wee bit skeptical on this vision.

  1. Nobody saw her because maybe she was in a mental institution in Massachusetts.

  2. It’s Peter Janko, not Phil or Phillip.

    This is not de ja vu. It has already happened and I have the receipts. You never got around to editing that one.
    “Too long ago, Democratic Party State Central Committeeman Phil Janko sent this suggestion for making contact tracing easier.”

    Check your first line and the text near the photo, Cal. You called him Phil Janko and Phillip Janko, but his name is Peter Janko. It says that a couple times in the article and Eddie also pointed it out.
