committeeman candidates and proposed list of questions

The Cook County Clerk lists the following people as having filed to run for committeeman in Proviso Township.

Democratic Party

Republican Party
  • Michael Corrigan, La Grange Park
  • Fred Potter, Brookfield
  • Kerry Dodero Beswick, Westchester, a Prudential real estate agent
  • Joseph A. Benning, Berkeley

Green Party
  • Suzanne von Leuschner, Brookfield, architect, Facebook

Here's what I know off the top of my head. Yarbrough is the incumbent Democrat running for her second term. She's been a state representative since 2001.

Corrigan is the incumbent Republican and was elected as the Proviso Township Supervisor in 2009. Previously he was the Proviso Township Assessor.

Conteduca, a former Melrose Park trustee, was active in Jesse Martinez's campaign to unseat Ron Serpico as village president in Melrose Park in 2009.

Below is a draft list of questions I will ask each candidate for committeeman.
1.Why do you identify with your party?
2.How should constituents contact you?
3.What candidates have you supported in the past?
4.Are you active with any causes or advocacy organizations?
5.What's your quick pitch for someone to be active with your party?
6.In what ways does your party need to improve? How will you affect change within your party?
7.Will you help constituents get jobs? Who will you help? How will you help them?
8.How would you characterize the performance of schools in Proviso Township? What should be done to improve the schools? Will you attend meetings of the board of education of Proviso Township High Schools?

How would you modify the list of questions?

  • Isn't the committeeman's job to organize the area and get out the Democratic vote? Any questions about ideas for recruiting precinct captains, etc.?

  • Is Brian Sloan, Don Sloan's nephew,really running against Peraica????
    Brian Sloan has been telling voters that Peraica is ducking him and refusing to debate him in a public forum(cable access channel).
    I can't believe Peraica and Manzo would be afraid of debating him.
    Why and what reason does Sloan think he's better canididate than Peraica to represnet the 16th district? What is his platfrom and what's his background???
