Rebecca Davies was a delegate to the 2016 Democratic Convention for Bernie Sanders. She currently serves on the La Grange Village Environmental Quality Control Commission. Prior to that she was elected to the District 102 School Board. She is the Illinois State Co-coordinator for Progressive Democrats of America and has been active in local, state and federal elections for many years. She currently supports her neighbor, Marie Newman, in her primary challenge to incumbent Dan Lipinski.
Rebecca believes that the Illinois and national Democratic Parties need to be more open, inclusive and transparent, to get back in touch with their grassroots base. Her goals in running for the State Central Committee are to liaise with local constituents and ensure their voices are heard, to fight for Progressive Ideals, to support the nomination and election of Progressive candidates, and to serve voters – not billionaires and special interests.
Previously, Rebecca was a Partner providing strategy consulting to international financial institutions, and believes her strong communication, problem-solving, analytical and team building skills will benefit the State Central Committee. She holds a Masters degree in International Management, with distinction, from Thunderbird International Management School and a BA in Political Science from University of California, Santa Barbara. She lives in La Grange with her two children.
