The Maine Township Republican Club and Patrice McDonough, a Des Plaines 6th Ward Candidate for Alderman was invited to join this Suburban Political Powerhouse. Many of Des Plaines top candidates were invited to attend this event at the Heritage in Des Plaines. A question period followed. During the event a fire alarm went off and I still have a headache from the noise. The event was a great success. Patrice McDonough was invited to become a member. Remember you can become a member if you call, 1-847-296-1474.
