Patrick Cortesi of Bloomington is featured during WGLT's My Playlist this month.

WGLT's My Playlist is a recurring series where you get to know a Bloomington-Normal resident by learning what they would put on their life playlist.

Each participant in the series gets to compile a playlist that connects with the core of who they are, such as a personal theme song or your love story, and much more.

This month's guest describes himself a landscaper and the current chair for the McLean County Democrats. It's Patrick Cortesi!

Check out Patrick's full playlist below, and listen to the episode above.
