Joining Forces Against Plutocracy in Macon County

Leaders from the Central Illinois Democratic Socialists of America, Macon County Progressives, and Macon County Democrats are aware that the 2022 campaign season has come early to Macon County and are prepared to work together to limit plutocratic influences in local government.


Macon County Progressives as an organization has not been very active in the past year, but we still have a Facebook presence. We welcome your thoughts on the 2022 race for Macon County Sheriff. For example, is it unreasonable to characterize the candidate in question as a "plutocrat"? You can join us on Facebook or email us at maconcountyprogressives@yahoo.com
