The Tenth Congressional District Democrats’ Meet the Candidate series continues Sunday, August 17, from 4:00-6:00 pm, with Sheila Simon, candidate for Illinois State Comptroller. Like all the candidate forums sponsored by our Tenth Dems University (TDU), it will be held at the Flame Charhouse (formerly Jimmy’s Charhouse), 1111 N. Milwaukee Avenue, Riverwoods, at the intersection of Deerfield Road. Admission is free. During the program, light refreshments will be served and a cash bar will be available.
In addition to the normal TDU event, there is a unique opportunity: Sheila is planning to stay at the Flame for dinner after the forum. If you can join us, you will have even more time to get to know her.
Lieutenant Governor Sheila Simon, our candidate for State Comptroller, offers a lifetime and legacy of public service. She is a lawyer, teacher and mother of two college-age daughters. Her record includes four years as a Jackson County prosecutor, a decade as a Southern Illinois University law professor and participation in the Illinois Reform Commission, which helped pass the state’s first campaign contribution law. Many people may also remember Sheila’s parents, the late U.S. Senator Paul Simon and former State Representative Jeanne Hurley Simon.
