WASHINGTON--Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick--who grew up on Chicago's South Side--returns to his hometown on May 31 to headline an "Organizing for Action Illinois State Founders Summit" on May 31 in downtown Chicago.
The OFA is the non-profit group created by the Obama presidential campaign after the election to bolster President Barack Obama's agenda.
From an OFA source: "The Illinois State Founders Summit on May 31st and June 1st is a continuation of the conversation that was started at our founders event held in Washington, D.C. in March. OFA supporters, volunteers, campaign alumni and donors will come together to discuss OFA's goals and the path forward to ensure the American people's voices are heard by lawmakers as we fight to tip the scales of power back to the American people and away from the special interests to advance the issues the American people voted for in November. ...This is an invite only event and there is no cost to attend."
