From Rich Whitney for Governor on facebook:

Chicago’s 55th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade will be a little bit Greener than years past, but Rich Whitney needs your enthusiasm to paint Chicago a different shade of politics!

The Whitney for Governor campaign will need festive parade marchers and canvassers to greet hundreds of folks, to gather their contact information, and to get them excited about empowering Illinois with its first Green governor!
