The DGCA reminds all candidates that by running for office, they are intending to be civil servants and they need to remember whom they will serve if elected. One of the greatest occurrences in this country is the peaceful transfer of political power - the successful candidate would do well to remain thankful for the faith placed in their candidacy by their supporters. Office holders must remain respectful of the electorate.

On April 7th, 2015 the residents of Downers Grove will again be given the chance to exercise their right to vote for candidates in several races including the Village Council, Park District and School Boards.

In the past, our endorsements were proudly displayed by each candidate on their respective websites. The Advocates will endorse and promote qualified candidates for Village Council, School Board and Park District.

Our efforts have been instrumental in the success of all of the Advocate endorsed candidates .




"When the politicians complain that TV turns the proceedings into a circus, it should be made clear that the circus was already there, and that TV has merely demonstrated that not all the performers are well trained."

Edward R. Murrow - US broadcast journalist & newscaster (1908 - 1965)
