Candidates to speak at MPC's 2014 Annual Luncheon
On Thursday, Aug. 28, join us for a conversation with the two major party candidates for governor of Illinois, Gov. Pat Quinn (D) and businessman Bruce Rauner (R). The non-debate format is in keeping with MPC’s tradition to provide a forum for candidates in key statewide races to share their plans, vision and priorities to secure a strong future for metropolitan Chicago's economy, communities, natural assets and infrastructure.
During the luncheon, MPC also will recognize W. James Farrell, former CEO of Illinois Tool Works Inc., with the 2014 Champion Fighter Award for his extraordinary civic contributions to our community.
