CHICAGO - Anyone interested in helping Governor Pat Quinn get re-elected next fall, a one day long "Camp Quinn" is going to take place at the SEIU Healthcare headquarters at 2229 S. Halsted St Saturday, June 7th from 10:00 am to 6:00 PM.
"We're just a few days away from the first-ever Camp Quinn -- a one-day strategy session for volunteers who want to be leaders on this campaign and in their communities," Quinn for Illinois' field director Nellie Sires writes.
"This is a rare chance to get an inside look at what's going to be one of the biggest and most important campaigns Illinois has seen in a long time," she says. "A few months from now, I guarantee we'll look back on this weekend as the moment where it all got started."
Quinn was endorsed and heavily funded by SEIU members in 2010, and while they're not happy with his pension reform, they are likely to endorse his candidacy in light of Bruce Rauner's campaign theme of attacking public sector union bosses.
