Welcome to our first meeting of the new year!
We're gathering this Saturday morning (Jan. 14) at 8:30 a.m. here at the office at 909 E. Rand Road, Arlington Heights. We are honored to welcome Leslie Munger -- who has served the past two years as State Comptroller -- as our speaker. Those of us who heard her on the campaign trail in 2016 know that Leslie is a gifted speaker and one who truly knows Illinois's financial struggles inside and out. It should be quite a constructive meeting for those of us who care deeply about rescuing Illinois for our children and grandchildren. Bring friends; they will find it well worth their time.
And put us on your calendar for the second Saturday in February and March, too; expect to hear from Dan Proft in February and Illinois House Assistant Republican Leader Peter Breen in March.
Now is the time to renew your membership in Republicans of Wheeling Township! Please fill out a new/renew membership card when you come to the meeting this Saturday and plan to give us a modest contribution as "dues." The cards will be available at the office from now on through the year. You can even take a couple to sign up friends. Help us build our team for future victories!
Attn: Voter Registrars! It is time to renew your oath as a "deputy registrar," and we have the forms for that at the office, too. So when you come Saturday, ask for a "Deputy Registrar Oath" to renew your commission. That will give you authority to register Illinois voters through Nov. 30, 2018. No need to be retrained ... unless you want a refresher at our next class (not scheduled at this point).
I am hoping to have news soon about the 2017 Lincoln Day Dinner, but the schedule and speaker have not yet been nailed down for our multi-township event. Stay tuned!
