Big crowd floods downtown Geneva for women's march; Lauren Underwood among those to applaud change

Author: Editor
Blowing snow and temperatures in the mid-20s Saturday morning did not deter a legion of women from taking to the streets of downtown Geneva in a show of solidarity.
 
"We're tough and we are going to march through," said Leah Beck, co-organizer of the Fox Valley Women’s March. "We are going to stand up for our rights and not let the weather slow us down.”
 
Orchestrated by We Can Lead Change Fox Valley and Kane County Coalition, the march was one of hundreds being held around the country to send a message of self-determination and unity.

Denise Winfrey to lead Will County board

Author: Editor

Since the political pendulum has swung in favor of the Democrats on the Will County board, leadership in both parties will be shifting, officials said. 

In a Nov. 13 meeting, the Democratic Caucus unanimously chose Denise Winfrey as the new speaker of the board, making her the county’s first female in that role.

 Winfrey has represented District 8 in Joliet since 2009, previously chaired the Capital Improvements Committee and holds several positions with the National Association of Counties.

'The pendulum has swung': Democrats see big election gains in Will County

Author: Editor

Riding the wave that thrust many Democrats and women to victory throughout the state Tuesday night, were Will County Democrats who appear to have won just enough seats on the county board to gain a 14-12 majority. 

They also apparently claimed all county-wide seats and two judgeships, according to unofficial results.

It is the first time that Democrats controlled all county-wide seats, board leadership said.
