The Skokie Caucus Party opened its doors to the public for its Annual Meeting on Monday, Jan. 14 at 7 p.m. The new office is located at 3716 Dempster Street.
Board Member Jim McCarthy welcomed the audience full of Skokie residents, which filled the room.
"The room was electric,” said McCarthy. “You could feel the energy in the crowd. It was great to see so many members of the Skokie Caucus Party come together and unite around the vision and plans of the Mayor and his team for the upcoming election.”
Mayor Van Dusen also spoke at the meeting, explaining that Skokie is one of the
few municipalities in the area that has been able to keep the portion of the
property taxes allocated to Skokie at the same level for more than 20 years.
