Written by Gavin Broderick on November 19, 2020
The very nature of elections brings the victors to the limelight, often the losers get swept under the rug and forgotten. But Chemberly Cummings is a local politician who refuses to give up. She recently ran and lost against incumbent Dan Brady for the seat in the Illinois 105th. But her reaction was not as extreme as one may expect. “We knew we were going to put in a lot of work. But we also knew it could go either way, considering I was going up against a 20-year incumbent. We didn’t necessarily plan for a loss, no one ever does going into an election, but we knew that it could have gone either way”.
Despite this loss, Cummings is not discouraged. She Is looking to remain a member of city council. “For right now I am trying to get signatures in order to get on the ballot for re-election for city council”. On the council she plans to remain a servant of the people.
