• Meet the New Illinois State Director

    I'm Obama for America's new Illinois State Director. I'm thrilled to be here, joining this team of supporters. I spent 2008 organizing for then-Senator Obama across the Midwest, and I am fired up for 2012.

    We've got less than six months to go before November 6th. That means we've got to do everything we can to deliver a win for President Obama here at home, and pitch in to help our friends in neighboring states like Iowa and Wisconsin. They've been doing some great organizing, and we can support that work.

    To help map out our efforts for the next six months, please join me and other supporters for a State of the State conference call at 7:00 p.m on Wednesday, May 16th.

    On the call, we'll get an update about the organizing we've done so far, including recaps of last Saturday's day of action in Iowa and Wisconsin. In case you missed it, volunteer teams from Illinois traveled to our neighbor states to help register voters and talk with people about the President's accomplishments. It was a great weekend, and we're looking forward to many more like it!

    We'll also talk about our broader national strategy, and how Illinois will help President Obama get the 270 electoral votes needed in November. There are new opportunities to get involved all the time, and we'll cover some of the most important ways you can help the campaign.

    I'm looking forwarding to meeting you on the call this Wednesday, and working with you for the next six months as we organize to re-elect President Obama.

    Talk to you soon,

    Janelle
