Patrick Botterman

Patrick Botterman, 44, died Monday, March 10, after suffering a heart attack following lunch in the Loop. He was just leaving the Democratic Leadership Conference in downtown Chicago. He was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Patrick Botterman served as Democratic Committeeman since 1993.

Patrick Botterman joined Eugenia Chapman’s campaign while he was still a student at Arlington High School. He graduated from Arlington High School in 1982. Chapman was a suburban Democrat in the state House from 1965 to 1983.

In 1989, Botterman managed Michael Schroeder’s first campaign for Arlington Heights trustee. Schroeder later became Mayor (Village President) of Arlington Heights to fill a vacancy in 1992.

In 1993, Patrick Botterman managed the campaign of Michael Schroeder for Arlington Mayor — running against the victor Arlene Mulder.

In 1996, Botterman directed the campaign for state Senator Terry Link.

Botterman was elected to the Harper College board in 1998 and served until he lost re-election in 2003.

Botterman organized a slate of Democrats and moderate Republicans who ran for local offices in 2001. Botterman also supported Republican Michael Schroeder in his successful election as Wheeling Township Supervisor.

In 2004, Democratic strategist Kevin Lampe persuaded Botterman to join him temporarily on former Sen. Carol Moseley-Braun’s presidential campaign.

In 2006, he ran the campaign for state Sen. Dan Kotowski of Park Ridge.

In 2007, Patrick Botterman was re-elected on the Harper College board.

Friends say he will be remembered for his willingness toward personal sacrifice to work hard and stand up to heavy political resistance, and for his sense of humor. Obituary Patrick S. Botterman
