    tickets-iconWe helped Gov. Rauner win last November’s election as New Trier went nearly 2-to-1 in his favor. After spending the year engaged in a battle to get Illinois’ finances and economy under control, we would like to welcome Bruce back home to his hometown organization. The governor will be joined by newly elected Congressman Darin LaHood, who won a special election to represent Illinois’ 18th District, which includes Rep. LaHood’s hometown of Peoria. We expect NTRO member and 10th District Congressman Bob Dold to be there (he’s a regular at our dinners), and we hope to see another longtime member, Kenilworth native Senator Mark Kirk, who is running for re-election in 2016. We expect other prominent officeholders and candidates to be there as we get ready to kick off the 2016 election season.

    Proft, a longtime friend of NTRO, has been a top political consultant and a policy expert on issues that matter to Illinoisans. In 2010, he ran for governor in the GOP primary. His comments are insightful and entertaining, and the Dinneree should be no exception.

    Candidates for other races will be there as well.

    Join us for the premier Republican event on the North Shore: the NTRO Dinneree, Oct. 20, 2013 at Allgauer’s in Northbrook.

    The 2013 New Trier Republican Organization Fall Dinner will spotlight the four Republican candidates for Governor in 2014. The primary season will have begun, and we are proud that all four candidates will outline their vision for Illinois at the Dinneree.

    State Sen. Bill Brady of Bloomington was the 2010 Republican nominee and he beat Gov. Pat Quinn in all but two Illinois counties in 2010. He knows how critical Cook County will be in the 2014 race. State Sen. Kirk Dillard of Hinsdale, Gov. Jim Edgar’s former Chief of Staff, finished second to Brady by only a handful of votes in the crowded 2010 primary.

    State Treasurer Dan Rutherford was elected in 2010 in a year in which our very own Mark Kirk punched his ticket to the U.S. Senate. Downballot from Kirk and Brady, Rutherford tallied more votes than Gov. Quinn, a sign of his ability to garner votes across traditional party lines.

    Winnetka resident and venture capitalist Bruce Rauner has decided to enter politics after seeing mismanagement by the Democrats in Springfield bankrupt the state and threaten the institutions we hold dear.

    Dan Proft, the WLS-AM morning drive host, will emcee the event. Dan is a friend of NTRO and he can empathize with our four featured guests as he ran for Governor in the crowded 2010 primary.

    The Dinneree is at Allgauer’s on the Riverfront in Northbrook. The reception with candidates and othe guests starts at 5:30, with the dinner to begin at 6:15.

    Tickets are $150 each, but purchase before Sept. 8 and save $25. Click here to purchase your ticket today.

  • Annual Dinner to Feature Adam Kinzinger

    U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) will be the featured speaker at the NTRO Annual Dinner Oct. 14 at Allgauer’s in Northbrook.

    “Congressman Kinzinger is one of the brightest young voices in Congress,” NTRO Committeeman Bill Cadigan said. “I am honored that he will be our guest at the Annual Dinner, and I think our members will enjoy hearing from him.”

    Rep. Kinzinger has established himself as one of the most trusted young voices on the Hill, serving as a Deputy Republican Whip. This year, he survived a difficult primary against veteran Rep. Don Manzullo, a matchup brought on by redistricting. Now he is unopposed in the general election.

    At the age of 34, Congressman Kinzinger is one of the youngest Members of Congress and was named one of Time Magazine’s 40 under 40 “Rising stars in American politics.”

    After serving on the McLean County Board for five years, Kinzinger joined the United States Air Force. He was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant in November 2003 and later awarded his pilot wings. He has served in the Air Force Special Operations, Air Combat Command, Air Mobility Command, and Air National Guard. He has the current rank of Major. He received the United States Air Force Airman’s Medal six times serving in Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. Kinzinger continues to serve his country as a pilot in the Air National Guard as a Member of Congress.

    Tickets for NTRO’s Annual Dinner are now on sale, and those who purchase a spot before July 31 will save $50 off the regular price of $150.
