Women's Republican Club
of Lake Forest & Lake Bluff
At its 2018 Annual Meeting, members of the Women's Republican Club elected new officers for 2018. They are:
Hilary Till, President
Michelle Parnell, 1st Vice President
Lisa Roti, 2nd Vice President
Angie Sage, Recording Secretary
Susan Somberg, Treasurer
Congratulations and thank you for serving!
Immediately after the Annual Meeting at which new officers and Bylaws changes were approved, WRC hosted a discussion with Q & A among the three candidates running for the U.S. House Seat in the 10th District. We are grateful that these accomplished Republicans are willing to fight for Republican values and we will help whoever wins the primary go on to beat the incumbent Democrat.
The Women’s Republican Club of Lake Forest-Lake Bluff was founded in 1941 and is the longest continually operating political organization of its kind in the area. The WRC exists to assist local, state and national Republican candidates win elective office; to assist elected Republican officeholders with constituent interface and to educate all voters on issues important to the maintenance of our Constitutional republic and the social and economic vitality of Illinois and our local communities.
Consistent with the written Illinois and National GOP platforms, the WRC supports reverence for the United States Constitution and the rule of law, and the traditional, American values protecting human life, personal liberty and responsibility, and the pursuit of happiness in any lawful sphere of endeavor.
The WRC does not support the increasingly intrusive and dehumanizing interference of either state or federal governments that deny life, liberty or the pursuit of happiness including but not limited to: job-killing oppressive taxation and regulation, wasteful government spending, the cynical creation and maintenance of a permanent, government-dependent underclass, corporate cronyism, the governmental monopoly on education, denial of school choice, the redefinition of marriage and the trampling of religious liberty.
We understand that good Republicans—both voters and candidates and to sometimes widely varying degrees—do not necessarily agree with everything in national or Illinois GOP platform. We agree with Ronald Reagan, who famously said that the person who agrees with you 80% of the time is a friend, not a 20% traitor. If you agree with 80% of the GOP platform, you’re a friend. What’s more, you’re a Republican! So join us!
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
