Leslie Danks Burke has dedicated herself to leading the way for transparent government.
When she founded Trailblazers PAC her mission was to deliver a message of transparency in local government. While her organization does not focus on state-level officials – they work to educate, and champion political candidates who are seeking local office.
Now, an event coming up on Tuesday, April 17th will put it all to music. ‘Front Porch Politics, a Dinner Theater by Rachel Lampert’ will take place at Club 86 in Geneva. The event will run from 5:15 – 7:30 p.m. and funds raised will go to candidates running transparent campaigns for public office.

Lajewski was in-studio on Friday talking about the development of conservation efforts over the winter, and how planning is crucial to their success in spring and summer months.
He also talked about some upcoming events for those interested in getting outdoors in February.
