We still need election judges to man precincts on Tuesday, April 7. It's a paid position with training. Please call Renee at the County Clerk's office -- 312/603-0966 -- and specify Wheeling Township Republicans. We need you if you can work it out!

If you'd like to help candidates in the local election campaign, now's the time. Several of the candidates have brought campaign literature into HQ for the convenience of volunteers, so if you are willing to walk or to post a yard-sign or otherwise help, please come to HQ during office hours. Or call ahead at other times to see whether someone is here. We're in and out frequently these days.

Put Saturday, April 11, on your calendar now and plan to be with us for our 8:30 a.m. monthly meeting. Congressman Bob Dold will be meeting with us that day. Begin now to invite friends.

Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC)
One of the GOP's bright young leaders, Sen. Tim Scott, will keynote the Lake County Republican Federation dinner on Friday, April 17, at Marriott Lincolnshire. We are planning to buy a table for this exciting event, as Lake County GOP has been so good to us in supporting us for Lincoln Day. If you would like to go, please send us a check for $100 payable to Republicans of Wheeling Twp. Send it to us at 909 E. Rand Road, Arlington Heights 60004, or send us a donation via credit card at http://www.rowtgop.org and type "Lake County: Scott" as the purpose. (Tickets are $125, but we would be pleased for you to join our table at a modest discount.)

Our condolences to Bill Grossi and family on the passing of Bill's mother.

Faithfully,

Ruth O’Connell

If you'd like to help candidates in the local election campaign, now's the time. Several of the candidates have brought campaign literature into HQ for the convenience of volunteers, so if you are willing to walk in this great early-spring weather or to post a yard-sign or otherwise to help, please come to HQ during office hours. Or call ahead at other times to see whether someone is here.

Our women's club had a nice crowd Monday night to view a timely speech (via DVD on our big screen) of former US:UN Ambassador John Bolton. He had a challenging message, which turned out to be especially appropriate on the eve of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu's stunning re-election. Next up for the women's club is the annual membership luncheon on Saturday, April 18; Comptroller Leslie Munger will keynote the event. If you're interested, call HQ at 847/632-1774 and leave a message for Lisa Smith.

Tomorrow night (March 19) brings the 6 p.m. fundraising reception for Arlington Heights trustee candidate Court Harris in the home of the House family, 611 E. Fairview, Arlington Heights. Requested donations are $15 per person or $20 per couple. RSVP via This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
