Maggie Trevor on Friday conceded the Illinois 54th House race. This one hurts. In 2018, Maggie came within 43 votes of winning this seat. This year, just as she did before, Maggie ran a campaign that was progressive, brave, honest, and caring. She prioritized health care, tax reform, equality in education, environmental protections and good faith government. In doing so, Maggie has laid a strong foundation for future Democratic leaders in Palatine Township and the 54th District. As she wrote in her concession post on her Facebook page, "Now is the time to turn our focus to upcoming municipal races, to further grow our party, and to rally behind our promising office holders, activists, and future candidates who will turn the 54th blue in 2022."
Let's get to work.
