Matt Flamm, a former state representative candidate and organizer for President Barack Obama's campaigns, will seek a Palatine Township Democratic Committeeman seat in next year's election, he announced this week.

Flamm filed his nominating papers Monday with the Cook County Clerk. He is running to succeed incumbent Committeeman Sue Walton, who is not seeking re-election.

"Under Sue Walton's leadership, Palatine Township has changed from a Republican area to an independent one," Flamm said.

Flamm, an attorney, has lived in Palatine since 1987 with his wife, Betty. Their two adult daughters graduated from Palatine High School. He was a volunteer for former U.S. Rep. Melissa Bean, and as an organizer for Obama's 2008 and 2012 campaigns, he led Northwest suburban volunteers who traveled to Iowa, Wisconsin, and other swing states to persuade undecided voters and increase voter turnout.

"We will focus on identifying Democratic voters and persuading them to vote," he said. "Voting by mail and early voting have made it easier for working people who may not be able to get to their polling place on Election Day. We need to make sure people know that voting is easy and essential."
