Kenilworth resident and NTRO member Richard Williamson was named RNC Committeeman from Illinois at the Illinois Republican Convention in Tinley Park.
Williamson was part of New Trier Township’s delegation led by Committeeman Bill Cadigan. At the convention, several of the featured speakers acknowledged the absence of Sen. Mark Kirk, a native of New Trier Township. Sen. Kirk is recovering from a stroke at a family member’s home in Kenilworth.
Cadigan met with several party leaders, including Illinois Republican Chairman Pat Brady, 10th Congressional District Committeeman Mark Shaw, Lake County Sheriff Mark Curran, Cook County Board of Review Commissioner Dan Patlak and Chicago Republican Chairman Adam Robinson.
“It is clear that our organization is held in high regard by Republican elected officials and activists from around the state,” Cadigan said.
