Republican State Rep. and candidate for state treasurer Tom Demmer reflected on his personal and campaign-related weekend activities in a Facebook post published on Saturday.
"It was a beautiful Saturday to spend with folks in Elk Grove Village, Palatine, Schaumburg and Bloomingdale. I was glad to knock on doors to support Rep. Chris Bos, to celebrate the start of Diwali and to stand with Ukrainians in a prayer for peace," the post read.
Demmer is also expected to appear at the Schaumburg Township Republican Organization breakfast forum on Saturday alongside others such as U.S. Senate candidate Kathy Salvi and Illinois Comptroller candidate Shannon Teresi, the Daily Herald reported.
In August, Demmer elaborated on his decision to run for state treasurer on the Bishop on Air program, Illinois Valley Times reported.
"In the last seven years or so, I've been the chief budget negotiator for the House Republicans and spent an inordinate amount of time working on state fiscal issues and having that familiarity, but also understanding how some of the arguments are made, how people sometimes cast finances in a certain light in order to suit a political outcome and we're certainly seeing that with the governor, at one time saying the state's finances 'we must pass this tax or we'll never survive' and now painting a very rosy picture as he seeks reelection," Demmer said. "So I think you need to be able to see through some of those arguments and be able to present a little bit more of a fact-based approach and, you know, that's what I've been working to do in the legislature, that's what I do as state treasurer."
In September, Demmer also visited Chicago's Little Village neighborhood, also known as the "Mexico of the Midwest," to experience the community's Mexican Independence Day parade.
"A little rain can’t stop us! I was glad to join a huge crowd for the Mexican Independence Day parade in Little Village," Demmer said in a Facebook post published on Sept. 17.
