We are in need of election judges for the Nov. 4 election. Pay for the day is $120, with $50 added for going through the required training, so essentially $170. Spanish-speaking judges are in especially short supply. Can you do it? Call our HQ at 847/632-1774 and leave a message for Frank Palisi, our election judge coordinator, so he can get in touch with you to answer questions or to sign you up. Or you can go directly to the county clerk's website at http://www.cookcountyclerk.com/elections/electionjudges/Pages/default.aspx.

We still have summer canvass pamphlets available for those who are willing to go out into the neighborhoods with the Republican message. Even though they were designed for our summer crew, they'll still be good into the fall!

A big thank-you to the members of our Women's Club who came in today to help address and stuff envelopes for a major mailing we're doing.

Tomorrow night (Thursday) Col. Allen West (former Florida Congressman) will keynote the 8th Congressional District GOP Leadership Conference, from 6 to 9 p.m. at Chandler's Chophouse, 401 N. Roselle Road, Schaumburg. Registration at $15 covers costs of food and beverages; for more information or to register, visit www.8thcongressional.com. I plan to go and hope to see you there!

Labor Day's coming, and so is the Buffalo Grove parade. It's this Sunday, Aug. 31, gathering at noon and stepping off at 1 p.m. To walk with any of an assortment of outstanding GOP nominees, go to Regent Drive south of Bernard and find Unit 48. You will be welcomed! Some of the candidates will have t-shirts available for you at the parade, or you can wear your ROWT shirt.

Mark your calendar for our September meeting on Saturday, Sept. 13, 8:30 a.m. here at HQ.

And then for the next day's NW Suburban Republican Family Picnic at Busse Woods in Elk Grove, Sunday, Sept. 14, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Details to follow.

Monday is Labor Day - back to regular hours at the HQ. Can you give us a few volunteer hours to greet voters who come in? From here on out, we  need all the help you can give us to bring in the votes for our candidates. That includes phone banking and much more.

Our condolences to Dan Proft on the loss of his mother.

Faithfully, Ruth O’Connell

Calling all Republicans! It's time to go out and start talking with voters. Bill Grossi, who's running for 57th Dist. State Representative, is looking for volunteers to walk with him this Saturday, Aug. 23. Lunch is on Bill at HQ if you come in at noon and walk with or for him on the north side of the township or the east. He has a lot of territory in Wheeling Township, and he needs our help!. If you can let him know in advance, call him at 847/977-6465 or send him an e-mail at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . If you can't decide till Saturday, come in at 10 anyway!

Plus, we have summer canvass pamphlets available for those who are willing to take a few blocks. Labor Day is just around the corner, and that's when things start to get focused. Why not get ahead of the game? (The Dems are already in our precincts; we cannot let them take our township!)

We still need volunteers to come into HQ and help address envelopes? 

8th Dist. Congressional nominee Larry Kaifesh, Attorney General nominee Paul Schimpf, State Treasurer nominee Tom Cross, Bill Grossi and 12th Subcircuit judicial nominee Jim Pieczonka have told me they will be walking in the  Buffalo Grove Labor Day parade ; they need you to walk with them to give a boost to their campaigns and let the Buffalo Grove voters know the GOP has arrived! They'll each be gathering at noon, Unit 48 on Regent Drive south of Bernard on Sunday, Aug. 31. Stepoff is at 1 p.m. Some of the candidates will have t-shirts available for you at the parade, or you can wear your ROWT shirt.

Have you heard the Oberweis for Senate radio ad tying Dick Durbin to the Nixon impeachment scandal by pointing out that Illinois's senior Senator has been doing the same things that forced Nixon out of office ... something about misusing the IRS? It's a powerful ad, designed to reach voters whom Sen. Durbin has been duping all these years. Go Jim!

The 8th Congressional District GOP Leadership Conference is next Thursday, Aug. 28, from 6 to 9 p.m. at Chandler's Chophouse, 401 N. Roselle Road, Schaumburg. Special guest for the event is former Congressman and retired Col. Allen West. Registration at $15 covers costs of food and beverages; for more information or to register, visit www.8thcongressional.com.

Our summer hours continue to be flexible, so call before you come in - regardless of our normal, posted hours - to be sure someone is here. Now that it's August, we're often here, and we'd love to see you!

We are co-hosting a training session with our sister organization, Republicans of Maine Township, on Wednesday, Aug. 27, at 7 p.m. at 680 Lee St. in Des Plaines. You can attend even if you are already a registrar, if you would like to brush up, but we must know in advance that you wish to participate.

Are you ready to win? You need to volunteer to canvass door-to-door for our nominees. I need to hear from you! Please come forward to help out. We can't let the Dems take Wheeling Township from our candidates! The candidates will be supplying their own literature after Labor Day, but we have a summer canvass pamphlet available for those who are willing to take a few blocks to get ahead of the game ... and some of the candidates are happy to walk with you. So let me know that you're on board to help.

Our 57th district State Rep. nominee Bill Grossi - who is a precinct captain in our own organization - would like you to walk with him on Saturday, Aug. 23. Come to HQ at 10 a.m., and plan to return to HQ around noon for lunch on Bill. If you can let him know in advance, call him at 847/977-6465 or send him an e-mail at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

We've reserved a Republican slot in the Buffalo Grove Labor Day parade for our GOP candidates to walk and show off their volunteers. The parade is Sunday, Aug. 31, assembling at noon for a 1 p.m. stepoff. Our Republican contingents will gather at Unit 48 on Regent Drive south of Bernard.

Monday's Bob Dold rally at Spears restaurant in Wheeling was an exciting event and very well attended. It's good to see so many Republicans getting behind our 10th District candidate to send Bob back to Congress.

Good news from the Paul Schimpf for Atty. General campaign! The Sun-Times has published a poll showing him within 9 points of Lisa Madigan, up 7 points from the last poll. It's do-able! Let's do our part to put Paul over the top! As his campaign says: Trust a Marine to fight the Madigan Machine!

Tomorrow, Aug. 14, is Republican Day at the Illinois State Fair in Springfield. Here's the link for further information: http://www.agr.state.il.us/isf/events/RepDay.htm.
