Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

Racine County Register of Deeds Connie Cobb Madsen and Racine Alderman Trevor Jung have been elected as delegates to the 2020 Democratic National Convention to be held in Milwaukee Aug. 17-20. Both will cast presidential nominating ballots for former Vice President Joe Biden.

Cobb Madsen and Jung are among six Democratic delegates from across the 1st Congressional District that was selected at a virtual meeting held Sunday. Susan Sheldon of Burlington was chosen as a delegate who will cast a nominating ballot for Sen. Bernie Sanders, D-Vt. Other area delegates are Kenosha County’s Sally Simpson and John Collins, who will be Biden delegates and Steve Doelder of Walworth County, who will serve as a Sanders delegate.

Wisconsin Democrats will send a total of 97 delegates and seven alternates to the 2020 DNC. Each of the state’s congressional districts is allocated delegates based upon the number of Democratic Party voters per district, in addition to at-large delegates. In the First Congressional District, four Democratic Party delegates are for Biden and two are for Sanders.

In addition to the delegate selection process, Meg Andrietsch, who serves as Chairwoman of the Racine County Democratic Party, was appointed as a temporary standing committee member of the Credentials Committee for the Democratic National Convention.
