The Palatine Township Democratic Organization (PTDO) met Saturday and voted to endorse candidates running in the March 20th Democratic primary election.

The Palatine Township Democratic Organization (PTDO) met Saturday and voted to endorse the following candidates running in the March 20th Democratic primary election:

For President - Barack Obama

For Representative in Congress (6th Congressional District) - Leslie Coolidge

For State Senate (29th District) - Julie Morrison

For State Senate (33rd District) - Dan Kotowski

For State Representative  (56th  District)- Michelle Mussman

For State Representative (57th District)- Elaine Nekritz

For Commissioners of the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District - Debra Shore, Kari Steele, and Stella Black

For Cook County Recorder - Karen Yarbrough

For Cook County State's Attorney - Anita Alvarez

For Clerk of the Circuit Court, Cook County - Rick Munoz

For Cook County Board of Review - 1st District - Casey Thomas Griffin

PTDO voted not to make an endorsement for Representative in Congress for the 8th Congressional District. The vote was closely divided between candidates Raja Krishnamoorthi and Tammy Duckworth, and the membership believed that either candidate would be an excellent representative of the 8th District.

Judicial endorsements will be made by the PTDO Executive Committee after the various bar and associations have made their recommendations.

The Palatine Township Democratic Organization is a all-volunteer organization comprised of Democratic and Independent voters committed to electing qualified candidates to national, state, county and local office.
