PHILADELPHIA –Illinois REALTORS® delegation to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia attended a reception Monday night and the state breakfast this morning.
The association sends REALTORS® to both conventions as a matter of policy each presidential election cycle. Last week many of the the bi-partisan association’s officers were at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.
This morning’s breakfast featured Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan, and kicks off a day which ends with a keynote at the Wells Fargo Arena by former President Bill Clinton.
Illinois REALTORS® President Mike Drews and President-elect Doug Carpenter arrived in Philadelphia Monday after spending a week in Cleveland.
Both said the opportunity last week to meet the state’s policymakers in an informal setting was well worth the effort.
