Our Great Lakes Region tour wraps up at 3 p.m. Friday when Executive Director John Pudner will meet people and have a Milwaukee radio interview near the Briggs & Stratton stage at Summerfest, the largest music festival in the world. Thursday Pudner met with Board Member Camille Solberg in Fond du Lac, WI, and Wednesday the rest of Take Back’s Great Lakes leadership team gathered at our “Returning Power To The People” forum in Chicago.
We are grateful for the hard work of the staff at our partner for the event, Common Cause Illinois, and the sponsors McCormick Foundation and Committee for Economic Development for the great turnout and organization of the event. The leadership team pictured from left to right is Great Lakes Regional Coordinator Bryan Posthumus, Pudner, Advisory Board Chair and former Illinois State Rep. Beth Coulson, Wisconsin coordinator Kristy Casey, Eastern Development Director Shaaya Ellis, and Take Back Board Member Rob Schaaf.
