Brendan O'Brien fundraiser set for January 21

Supporters of Brendan O'Brien's campaign for the countywide Love vacancy are holding a fundraiser for their candidate on Thursday, January 21, 2016, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., at Moe's Cantina, 155 W. Kinzie.

Wait a minute, you say -- isn't O'Brien unopposed in the primary? Isn't it true that he faces no Republican opposition?

Well, you are correct, the answer to both those questions is 'yes' -- but the campaign necessarily incurred expenses to get to this point. The campaign could not assume that no one would oppose their candidate. So a fundraiser is still needed to defray expenses.

But the ticket price is only $50 per person (a $300 sponsorship is available). Cocktails and food will be served. Hosts for the event are Martin Perez, Mark McKenna, Stephanie Nathanson, John Palumbo, Paul Reidy, Mark Hooper, Dave Gubbins, Dan Trevino, Steve Bonanno, Stan Davidson, Phil Kujawa, Dave Afini, Josh Vincent, and Ted McNabola.
