Joe Carlasare, of Frankfort, will serve for the next two years as president of the Young Democrats of Illinois, according to a news release.
“It’s an honor to be chosen to lead this great organization,” Carlasare said. “Matt Fruth has done a wonderful job leading this organization, and I look forward to working with him and the executive board to continue to build on his efforts and engage young Democrats statewide to become involved in our organization.”
More than 40 delegates attended a recent convention hosted by the Sangamon County Young Democrats.
The Young Democrats of Illinois is an umbrella group made up of chapters from throughout the state.
