After holding the Macoupin County Democrats’ bi-yearly re-organization meeting by teleconference due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Pamela S. Monetti of Bunker Hill was unanimously voted chairman of the Macoupin County Democrat Central Committee, succeeding long-time Chairman Mike Mathis of Gillespie.
“I’m excited to continue the work started by Chair Mathis and look forward to keeping the legacy of service embraced by former Chair Mathis and his predecessor, the late great Illinois State Sen. Vince Demuzio. In these times of turbulent and divisive rhetoric, the Macoupin County Democrat Party will continue to focus on the needs of our families and friends. We understand the importance of a strong economy, infrastructure and schools in our communities and will continue to fight for those vital needs,” Monetti said on her being elected.
