BECOME A PRECINCT COMMITTEEMAN
The Will County Republican Central Committee is looking for good conservative people willing to join us in working together to make our community and America the best place in the world to live. We have a shared vision of the United States having a smaller government. History shows everyone has the best opportunity for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness when government is smaller. The most effective political work starts in the precincts. The best way to learn precinct work is from the collective experience of others. As an elected or appointed Republican Precinct Committeeman, you have available to you training, resources and coordinated help that no other community organization can offer.
Freedom is neither cheap nor easy. As Ronald Reagan once said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” To accomplish our goals, we strive to win elections. The most important factor in winning elections is nominating in the Republican primaries or slating for offices candidates who are conservative, honest, and have the personal qualities that allow them to run hard for office and win elections. Committeemen traditionally have a strong voice in selecting candidates for office through a process of endorsement.
In 2010, the Will County Sheriff’s race was won by less than 5 votes per precinct. In 2008 election, one of the County Board seats was won by 7 votes out of over 28,000 cast. In 1988, the Will County Recorder of Deeds race was won by 14 votes out of 120,000 votes cast. As a precinct committeeman, you will have opportunities to talk to voters, motivate a higher Republican turnout, and greatly increase the Republican vote. The more the Precinct Committeemen do, the more elections we will win, to further our common vision.
The first step in becoming a Precinct Committeemen is to contact the Republican Township Chairman. Names, email addresses, and phone numbers of each of them can be found on the Township Links page.
