NTRO Members and Friends:
I want to inform you that I have been appointed by Governor Rauner and confirmed by the Illinois State Senate to serve as a member of the Illinois State Board of Elections beginning July 1, 2015. Under state law, I cannot simultaneously serve on the State Board of Elections and as a Township Committeeman.
I have submitted my resignation and it will take effect this Sunday, June 14 upon the conclusion of our Annual Wine & Cheese Party.
I also wanted to let you know that I have asked Marc Levine of Wilmette to take over as the leader of the New Trier Republican Organization. Marc is well known and highly regarded in local, state and national Republican circles. He has been very active in NTRO during my tenure as Committeeman and I am confident he will continue to build on the success we had as an organization in the 2014 election cycle. Governor Rauner, Senator Kirk, and Congressman Dold are also very supportive of Marc taking over the leadership of NTRO.
If you have not already done so, please take a moment and click here to RSVP to the Wine and Cheese Party this Sunday. It will give me an opportunity to personally thank you for your friendship and support during my time as Committeeman. It will also give you the chance to spend some time with Marc Levine as he assumes his new responsibilities. We have a great program lined up: State Rep. Jeanne Ives of Wheaton will update you on the happenings in the General Assembly as the Democrats continue to try their old, tired political tricks instead of working across the aisle and with Gov. Rauner to create a workable, balanced budget. John Tillman will also be there. A leading expert on the state’s pension crisis, John also has championed policies to promote economic growth.
I look forward to seeing you Sunday.
