David Moore on Pat Dowell’s Decision to Pivot to Washington Instead of Springfield (Chicago, IL) – In less than a week, petitions will start circulating for candidates to get on the ballot for the June 28 primary election. As we see in the secretary of state’s race to replace the retiring Jesse White, nothing is constant except change. Alderman Pat Dowell’s decision to end her bid for secretary of state and run for congress changes the race significantly.

I am the only candidate in the secretary of state’s race who circulated petitions for candidate White to run for secretary of state in 1997. Although he had served as a state legislator and Cook County Recorder of Deeds, he did not receive the party’s endorsement.

Jesse White

I believed then, as now that candidate White was the right person for the job—given the office was mired in scandal and corruption. His long service has underscored the need to keep the secretary of state’s office a “servant’s seat,” driven by service to Illinois constituents and not by political ambition.

My record of standing with working families is unassailable, both as a private citizen and elected official. I will build on White’s rich legacy and run the office with great integrity and character while professionally conducting the business of secretary of state, as I stated in my announcement speech on the campus of Western Illinois University in Macomb nearly eight months ago.

No Job Too Small

Whether as a private citizen or public official, David Moore believes no job is too small or too large for him to tackle to improve the lives of neighbors and constituents—both locally and statewide.

The Englewood resident possesses a rare combination of corporate experience, political savvy and passion for progressive change. Through Moore’s work as a community organizer, political campaign manager and public policy liaison, he has connected with people and issues in every corner of the state.
