PDA Endorses Jeff Smith

The Illinois chapter of the Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) has endorsed Jeff Smith in the Democratic primary for State Representative in the 18th District. According to its website, PDA “was founded in 2004 to transform the Democratic Party and our country. We seek to build a party and government controlled by citizens, not corporate elites—with policies that serve the broad public interest, not just private interests.”  

Mr. Smith previously received the backing by Northside Democracy for America and the IVI-IPO.  

The 18th District includes most of Evanston, approximately the eastern half of New Trier Township, and the northeastern part of the 49th Ward of Chicago.
