Register to receive Capitol Report Updates for the Summer

Your HEA Local encourages everyone to go the the IEA Website and register using the My IEA Profile button in the upper left of the page to receive the Capitol Report updates sent to your e-mail during the summer.






Local candidates for State Rep, Senate and US Congress seeking IEA’s recommendation/ endorsement will be attending a recommendation hearing

June 12 at the Double Tree Inn in Mundelein.

 Each local has a weighted vote in deciding if a candidate receives IEA’s recommendation. Although the local president or his designee casts the vote, any interested members are encouraged to attend. Candidates are usually anxious to receive IEA’s recommendation so this is your opportunity to not only hear what the candidate has to say, but to question them about their plans or past performance in office.
John Langelund will be out of town on this date, so he has designated Ryan Manning to cast HEA’s vote. I will be attending the hearings the Grassroots Political Activist for our region. If you have an interest in attending, whether for the entire day or just for candidates in one race, contact me or Ryan Manning.
